Sutter County’s Road Maintenance Division has been extra busy in the last 48 hours dealing with flooded roads and debris in culverts that is hindering drainage.
South Sutter County in the Pleasant Grove area is susceptible to flooding due to runoff carried by several creeks that begin in Placer County to the east. As of Wednesday morning, portions of five roads (Fifield, Keys, Brewer, Placer, and Pleasant Grove roads) in the Pleasant Grove area were closed due to flooding.
If you encounter a flooded road, turn around. It does not take much water to float a car off a roadway into a ditch, and about half of drownings occur in vehicles.
You can get road closure updates from the Road Maintenance Division on the Sutter County website (www.suttercounty.org). Here’s the direct link: https://www.suttercounty.org/doc/apps/road_closures
