WEST NILE VIRUS UPDATE
The City of Torrance Public Works Department receives calls pertaining to standing water in curbs and gutters, as well as concerns stemming from the media regarding West Nile Virus. We are making every effort to address these concerns throughout the City. The Public Works Department maintains the City's 550 miles of sidewalks, curbs and gutters and prioritizes repairs based on the amount of damage. We do keep a record of service requests, and every location is visited and documented. We will use this information in planning our maintenance activities as they apply.
If you have an ornamental pond, swimming pool, or other kinds of containers or areas that hold standing water, these may be breeding sources for mosquitos. To find out more information regarding mosquito abatement, please contact:
