Document Description
The proposed Lower Penitencia Improvements Project would improve flood protection for residents, businesses, and infrastructure along approx one mile of the Lower Penitencia Creek Channel in the city of Milpitas. The District is currently constructing the Lower Berryessa Creek Flood Protection Project upstream. The US Army Corps of Engineers is constructing the Upper Berryessa Creek Flood Risk Management Project, which is also upstream of the project and the Lower Berryessa Creek Project. The project at Lower Penitencia Creek consists of developing new flood protection infrastructure necessary to convey increased flows (the future one-percent flood event or 100-year event) that will be delivered from the completion of the two upstream projects on Berryessa Creek. The project would expand the channel conveyance capacity at Lower Penitencia Creek through development of: floodwalls, earthen ramps at the Reach 3 floodwall, a vegetated bench , a relocated and raised levee, bridge headwalls, sediment removal, and revegetation.
