To reduce the risk of another deadly debris flow, the first of six ring nets was installed Tuesday in San Ysidro Canyon by the nonprofit Partnership for Resilient Communities. The project is the result of more than a year’s effort securing permits and private fundraising. The debris-control nets will be installed in spots that can catch flood material: two in San Ysidro Canyon, two in Cold Spring Canyon, and two in Buena Vista Canyon. Depending on funding, Hot Springs Canyon and Romero Canyon will follow.
