Document Description
This project will improve water security for Memorial County Park, located in upper Pescadero Creek Watershed, San Mateo County. The goal of this project is to replace the Memorial Park water mainline, Sequoia Flat campground water mainline and distribution pipelines and Wurr Road campground water pipeline which have experienced catastrophic leaks in recent years. The project goals will be accomplished by using open-cut trenching techniques/directional boring to install new HDPE pipelines and fixtures. This project will also help protect streamflow in Pescadero Creek, especially during the summer months when stream flows are at their lowest levels and will protect habitat for native steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch).
