As a precautionary measure, the Public Works Department ordered the temporary shut down part of Country Club Drive, a narrow, winding roadway with angled sides that keeps rainwater and debris flowing to debris basins.
The road into Wildwood Canyon, closed following the mudslides in October, is expected to remain off-limits to vehicles through the winter, Teaford said.
For the two storms that hit the area on Saturday and Monday, the city's unofficial weather station at a landfill in the hillside recorded that 3 inches of rain fell, Teaford said.
That amount exceeded what fell in October although damage was practically nonexistent this time around, Teaford said.
Teaford theorized there was less debris coming off the hillside over the weekend because most of it had come down in October.
Also, intermittent rain since October has allowed some vegetation to take hold and stabilize the hillside, Teaford said.
The department will wait for the water to drain off from the debris basins before deciding whether they need to be emptied again, Teaford said.
"They are not full at all," she added.
Assistant City Manager Mike Flad said that the unfilled debris basins are the best case scenario for the city.
The city will probably not experience serious problems in the hillside this winter if there are alternation periods of sunshine and rain, Flad said.
"As long as that happens it facilitates growth in vegetation, so in the long-term it's a good thing," Flad said.
