Document Description
Large flows occurred in Moraga Creek during the 2016 and 2017 winter storms resulting in creek bank erosion and a large landslide along a 300-ft long reach. The landslide deposited debris and trees into the creek channel, leading to erosion of the opposite creek bank. The purpose of the project is to provide environmental, design, and construction services to install a retaining wall, repair the damaged creek banks, and restore the previous trail /access road across the slope. See Attachment A.
