Plan of Control

The following Plan of Control includes a description of the geologic hazard and a plan for the prevention, mitgation, abatement or control of the hazard and the limitations and exclusions of the district.Coming Soon

Community Discussion

The GHAD provides geologic hazard abatement capabilities that otherwise would not exist within these communities and districts. ATI Engineering & Architecture has a longstanding relationship with the Blackhawk and Canyon Lakes GHAD management and has acquired first-hand knowledge of the benefit created by a GHAD.
Robert Deautels, ATI Architects & Engineers
In working with the GHAD over the past several years, I have realized that the GHAD’s managers recognize the need for proactive planning for the increasing potential for slope stability issues as the development ages and subsurface conditions change with time.  Perhaps more importantly, after 25+ years of experience, the GHAD understands how to remain fiscally stable and be prepared to rapidly, efficiently, and responsibly address geologic problems as they arise.
Phillip Gregory, Principal Engineer - Cal Engineering & Geology
‘GHADs are highly effective public agencies that protect homes, schools and infrastructure from the hazards of landslides, flooding and erosion. Whether through slope stabilization measures, monitoring, or preventive maintenance, GHADs have been crucial in providing public safety for thousands of people throughout California.
