Document Description
Partial removal of Sunol and Niles Dams to: (1) Remove barriers to fish passage in keeping with the Alameda Creek Fisheries Restoration Workgroup (ACFRW) goal of restoring a self-sustaining population of steelhead to the Alameda Creek watershed, while recognizing other beneficial uses (e.g., water supply and flood control); and (2) reduce or eliminate an existing public safety hazard and related SFPUC risk management concerns. In association with the removal of the dams, impounded sediment would be left in place to move downstream naturally over a period of several decades. Removal of the dams is proposed to occur between May and November 2006.
