Document Description
Note: FYI Final The project would construct levees between Coyote Creek and Alviso Slough at the southern edge of San Francisco Bay to protect north San Jose including the community of Alviso and the San Jose/Santa Clara Regional Wastewater Facility against the 1-percent tidal event with anticipating sea level rise; restoration of approximately 3,000 acres of former salt ponds with transition habitat; and multi-use trails on top of the new levees with connection to the Bay Trail network, viewing platforms and benches, and trail upgrades to be made to an existing segment of the Bay Trail system along SR 237. The flood protection components would be constructed between 2017 and 2020. Restoration of the ponds and recreation elements would take place between 2020 and 2031 with monitoring and adaptive management occurring throughout the period.
