Document Description
Note: Reference SCH# 1982102610 The District is planning capital improvements to Lower Penitencia Creek. The Proposed Project extends from the Coyote Creek confluence to the San Andreas Drive Bridge. The project is part of the Lower Berryessa Program, which consist of capital improvements to other elements including Lower Berryessa Creek. Lower Penitencia Creek is the downstream element of the Program and receives water discharged by each of the other elements. To accommodate upstream capital improvements to the Lower and Upper Berryessa Creek, the Proposed Project would construct channel improvements to provide additional flood protection. Project components include: floodplains, relocated and/or raised levees, floodwalls on levees, bridge modifications, improved channel access roads, and sediment/vegetation removal.
