First of six debris nets installed in canyons above Montecito


It was an exciting day Tuesday for the Montecito community as one of at least six debris nets was installed in a canyon above the town. Many are now relying on these nets to prevent another disaster like last year’s deadly mud and debris flow. After a more than two-hour delay due to fog, a helicopter coming from Paso Robles was able to pick up the net and help install it in San Ysidro Canyon. Those that have been involved in this project hope this will help put the community at ease.
