                                          Background

Santa Barbara County, the City of Santa Barbara, and the City of Goleta have prepared this
Emergency Action Plan (EAP) in preparation for a possible flood emergency following the 2008
Gap fire. The purpose of the EAP is to safeguard lives and minimize property damage in the
event of flooding or debris flows generated by post- fire runoff from winter storms.

In July 2008, the Gap wildfire broke out on the south coast of Santa Barbara County and burned
a total of 9,544 acres before it was contained on July 28, 2008. The fire began on July 1, 2008,
in the Los Padres National Forest in the vicinity of Lizard’s Mouth on West Camino Cielo Road,
approximately 4 miles west of Highway 154 and 3.5 miles north of the city of Goleta. The
burned area encompasses portions of the San Jose Creek, Las Vegas/San Pedro Creek, Carneros
Creek, Tecolotito Creek, Ellwood/Winchester Creek, Tecolote Creek, and Eagle Canyon Creek
watersheds. This area was last burned in the 1955 Refugio fire. Table 1 provides a summary of
the affected South Coast watersheds.

The burned terrain is steep and mountainous with thin soils. The predomina nt vegetation type is
mature chaparral.

Post-wildfire changes in basin hydrology typically include a shift toward greater runoff volumes
and higher magnitude peak runoff rates during subsequent rainstorms. One cause is the removal
of vegetation that normally provides interception, attenuation, and evapotranspiration. Another
cause is the formation of soil hydrophobicity. Hydrophobic layers form in soil during intense
fires that vaporize a waxy substance found in plant material. The vapors penetrate the soil and
cool, causing the waxy substance to solidify and cling to soil particles forming a water repellent
layer. Increased soil erosion and the occurrence of mass movements including debris flows are
also concerns in watersheds where fire has destroyed vegetation.

The EAP addresses flood and sedimentation concerns in urbanized South Coast watersheds.
Primary concerns are flooding at the Santa Barbara Airport and in Goleta north of Calle Real
along Las Vegas and San Pedro Creeks, sedimentation in channels downstream of the burn area,
and plugging of culverts and bridges with debris.

3. Monitoring and Maintenance

Santa Barbara County will:

      Monitor gauged rainfall using its ALERT system, a network of real-time meteorological monitoring
       equipment. Parameters measured and reported by the network include rainfall, stream flow, wind
       speed and direction, temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity. The data from these sensors are
       sent via radio telemetry through a series of repeaters to the Division’s downtown office and the NWS
       in Oxnard. The nearest NWS rainfall forecast location is San Marcos Pass.
      Consider installing one or two temporary rain gauges or other instrumentation in the burn area or
       downstream. The NWS and the USGS have suggested that they may install instrumentation to
       monitor post- fire runoff and debris flow activity. In this case, the County may choose to utilize the
       NWS/USGS gauges.

                                                      6
      Conduct evaluations and participate in efforts by other agencies to evaluate short- and long-term
       impacts in and downstream of burned watersheds. Potential impacts may include flooding, soil
       erosion including debris flows and landslides, impacts to infrastructure and flood control facilities,
       changes to vegetation structure, delivery of organic debris to downstream areas, and changes to USFS
       planned maintenance activities.
      Monitor and maintain County facilities throughout the winter as described in the Gap F ire Emergency
       Watershed Response Plan including defined sediment basins on Tecolotito (airport), Carneros
       (airport), San Pedro, and San Jose Creeks.

Department                              reimbursement for repairing West Camino

                                           16
                                        Cielo Road. Jim Calacal from FEMA
                                        replied that FEMA only covers temporary
                                        repair work that would make the road
                                        passable. FEMA would not pay for a
                                        permanent fix. Emergency prot ection
                                        measures on the road would be
                                        addressed on site by site bases.
                                       Rickard ask Calacal if the entire length of
                                        West Camino Cielo road (all damage was
                                        caused by tractors from beginning to end)
                                        could be emergency opening repaired up
                                        to the point of laying down of asphalt.
                                        Charles Rabamad (PAO/OES) stated it is
                                        debatable as to the degrees of damage
                                        (all of the roadway has deep tearing from
                                        the tractors whic h is a hazard to bicycles
                                        and mot orcyclist) FEMA said “NO” don’t
                                        go there…FEMA did agree that the 100%
                                        torn up road is a hazard and should be
                                        repaired under emergency measures by
                                        patching…that is all they would reimburse.
                                       Rickard told FEMA that the P DA missed
                                        by 50% the Emergency Cost for the EOC,
                                        Sheriff’s, County Fire, and Public Healt h
                                        along with General Services – the P DA
                                        should have been $800,000 for Cat “B”
                                        non-roads work
                                       Rickard mentioned he is having a hard
                                        time achieving NEG (National Emergency
                                        Grant) funds for crews to work in the
                                        creeks – Currently the DOL is also
                                        confused if FEMA-3287 qualifies as the
                                        correct disaster to trigger the NEG grants.
                                        Rickard has conferred with State OES
                                        Charles Rabamad and County (Workforce

                                           big issue this winter. Tom warned that we
                                           should also be prepared to deal with
                                           woody debris and that d/s culverts and
                                           bridges may be at risk.
                                          Lance said funding is an issue. FHWA
                                           does not fund preventative type work.
                                           FHWA funding covers responding to
                                           flooding once it occurs. Lance requested
                                           the BAER report to see if that could
                                           potentially help with obtaining funding for
                                           pre disaster work.

                Gillings                   eligibility of road repair.
                                          Dave said that Charles will write up the
                                           cost share with estimated cost and then

                                 Jeff asked about the status of the MOU. The Sanitation District
                                  does not want more than 25% exposure of unknown risk. Board
                                  feels that risk should be split between County and Cities – but
                                  ultimately it doesn’t matter to them who splits the remaining risk.
