Document Description
The Project is located in southern Santa Clara County in the communities of Morgan Hill, San Martin, and Gilroy. The Project consists of the upper seven reaches (4, 5, 6, 7A, 8 and 14) of Llagas Creek, East Little Llagas Creek, and West Little Llagas Creek. Upper Llagas Creek has flooded the San Martin and Morgan Hill communities repeatedly. Channel modifications in Reaches 4, 5, 6, 7B, and 14 would consist of widening and deepening. A bypass channel in Reach 7A would route flows from West Little Llagas Creek to Llagas Creek near Lake Silveira. Several alternatives include deepening and widening of Reach 8 and several other alternatives include a high flow bypass tunnel through downtown Morgan Hill (Reach 8). The creek channel would be properly sized for sediment transport, geomorphic stability and to allow for unimpeded fish passage.
