Document Description
The project would ultimately protect properties and infrastructure between East Bayshore Road and the San Francisco Bay from San Francisquito Creek (Creek) flows resulting from 100-year fluvial flood flows occurring at the same time as a 100-year tide, accounting for projected sea level rise through 2067. The Project would reduce local fluvial flood risks in the Project area during storm events, provide the capacity needed for future upstream improvements, increase and improve ecological habitat, and provide for improved recreational opportunities. The Project components proposed to improve management of flood flows along the Creek from East Bayshore Road to San Francisco Bay include opening the Creek channel to flow into the Baylands Preserve, reconfiguring and raising levees, creating a marshplain terrace to convey high flows, installing floodwalls, widening the Creek channel, and constructing access roads for maintenance purposes. The majority of the Project elements would occur on properties in Palo Alto and East Palo Alto and owned by the City of Palo Alto, or within Santa Clara Valley Water District or City of East Palo Alto rights-of-way.
