It is dry except during heavy rain storms when flash floods are possible.

There are a couple small streams that flow down from the hills to the north that flow or trickle during part of the year. It's been so long since I have driven those canyons that I've forgotten the names.

And to complete my comments on water, Castaic Lake is a few miles north of Santa Clarita. They have fishing and maybe water skiing. It is an artificial lake and some SC residents have expressed concern that an earthquake could cause the dam to break and flood SC. It's food for thought.

No. However it is a good idea to get earthquake insurance and it would be a really good idea to get an earthquake gas shutoff valve.

Unfortunately earthquake insurance is prohibitively expensive, or at least I'll tell you that I checked out the price for my house and I couldn't afford it. The coverage isn't very good either due to the high deductible.
