Document Description
The summer 2016 construction project would stabilize and restore 330 feet of Matadero Creek, to reduce erosion and undercutting of the creek channel caused by the 2009-2010 winter storms. The project includes: removal of a portion of the outfall apron below the Page Mill Road box culvert; removal of 13 willow and walnut trees, grading the new channel; creation of a rock rip-rap chute and reinforced drop-pool habitat feature; downstream reinforcement of the creek bank, replanting to shade the creek with willows, walnuts and native grasses. The project would retain the 100-year flood control levels and would control the headcut, which if left unchecked, would erode upstream and eventually undermine the Page Mill Road box culvert.
