Document Description
The channel and pipe through Ventura County Flood Control District (VCFCD) parcels at the intersection of Texas Avenue and Alamo Street would be daylighted and any concrete lining would be removed and replaced with riprap. Portions of the VCFCD parcels would be inundated with water and planted with native vegetation. The concrete channel in between Alamo Street and the 118 Freeway will be regraded and buried riprap would be installed in a creek configuration with more meanders. This would allow for increased infiltration of storm water. Several large private parcels on either side of the 118 Freeway would also be acquired. Small wetlands, in the form of meanders, would be created. This project seeks to create approximately two acres of prime riparian woodland habitat.
