This following project description is for a project that is currently being discussed and revised with input from Livermore Area Recreation and Parks District.
This project will construct wetlands and bio-technical bank stabilization measures, manage vegetation by removing non-native species, install recreation features, such as an education center/indoor classroom, build levees, and dedicate approximately 35 acres of land within levees as 100-year floodplain park/open space to prevent development within floodplain.
Depends on available grant funds
Drinking Water Supply
Water Quality Improvement
Habitat Protection and Restoration
This project curtails erosion, while creating wetlands to improve water quality and enhance critical habitat.
Coordination with Livermore Area Recreation and Parks District
Yes, depending on available grant funding.
Environmental and habitat protection and improvement, Flood management, Recreation and public access, Wetlands enhancement and creation
This project is needed to curtail erosion and create wetlands that will improve water quality, enhance critical habitat, and improve groundwater recharge by slowing, spreading, and sinking storm water runoff.
a. Provides constructed wetlands that will:
i. Improve water quality
ii. Provide critical habitat
iii. promote groundwater recharge by slowing, spreading, and sinking storm water runoff.
b. Provides bank stabilization
Increases Water Supply Reliability
Advances/ Expands Conjunctive Management of Multiple Water Supply Sources
Increases Water Use and/or Reuse Efficiency
Provides Additional Water Supply
Promotes Water Quality Protection
Reduces Water Demand
Advances/Expands Water Recycling
Promotes Urban Runoff Reuse
Addresses Sea Level Rise
Addresses other Anticipated Climate Change Impact (e.g. through water management system modifications)
Improves Flood Control (e.g. through wetlands restoration, management, protection)
