First Signs of West Nile Virus Activity in Placer County

The Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District reported yesterday that six mosquito samples and one dead bird have tested positive for West Nile virus this week.  The mosquito samples were collected from sites along the county's western border, from as far south as the north Elverta area, and as far north as Lincoln.  The dead bird was collected from Rocklin.  Mosquito numbers have also increased in the past week, most likely from sustained higher temperatures.  

District staff have been moving aggressively to control immature mosquito populations out in the agricultural areas to the west, in an effort to stem the development of adult mosquitoes.  "This kind of mosquito and West Nile virus activity is not unusual for this time of year.  We are concerned that the timing of this increase in West Nile virus activity comes right before a long holiday weekend, when people are more likely to be spending a lot of time outdoors, especially during the dusk and evening hours," states Joel Buettner, District general manager.
Due to this latest development, the District is planning both aerial treatments and ground-based treatments for adult mosquitoes.  More information about the planned treatment will be available on the District's website  The Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District advises the public to implement the 3 Ds of protection:
  •          Drain or dump any standing water that may produce mosquitoes.
  •          Defend yourself and your home by using a CDC-recommended insect repellent and dressing protectively when outside, and making sure screens on doors and windows are in good condition.
  •          Contact the District for any additional help controlling mosquitoes around your home.                      
 For a list of CDC-recommended repellents, please visit the District's website or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Placer residents can also call Placer County Public Health at 530-889-7141.

McBean Park Drive Bridge Replacement Project


The upcoming McBean Park Drive Bridge Replacement Project will replace the existing   bridge on McBean Park Drive over the Auburn Ravine to improve flood protection and improve mobility over the ravine.  The bridge will be designed and built as a gateway into downtown Lincoln with construction anticipated to begin in 2018 and completed in 2019. The project team has developed three preliminary concepts for the design of the bridge, and is seeking community input on 3 concepts.

Planning a Special Event?


Throughout the years, event planners and service organizations have been looking for a  comprehensive "Community Calendar" where they could advertise their events, or to check to make sure there are no other events planned for the same day.

With the City's new website, we now have such a tool in place! And the process is simple.

Simply click here to submit your event right now. Instructions are very easy to follow.

If you should have any problems submitting your event, please contact the City's Public Information Officer, Jill Thompson, at (916) 434-2448 and she will be happy to walk you through the process.

It is our hope that by using this tool, all City service organizations and event planners will get more exposure for their special events, and that by avoiding multiple events on the same day, each event will be well attended and a huge success!
