Custom device is the first in a project spearheaded by the Partnership for Resilient Communities. Installation of the first steel mesh debris-catching net got underway Tuesday in San Ysidro Canyon above Montecito. The GeoBrugg flexible debris-control net, made by a Swiss company, is strategically positioned with the aim of reducing the impact of future debris flows triggered by intense rains across the Thomas Fire burn area.
