Drinking Water Supply
Water Quality Improvement
Habitat Protection and Restoration
This project will improve flood protection in the City of San Pablo
Federal and State Participation would be needed to fund this project
Part 2 - Detail
This project would be an upstream expansion of the US Army Corps of Engineers project that stopped at the BNSF Railroad. The project would likely consist of in-stream work, plus bypass pipes to greatly reduce the flood risk of the surrounding community.
Wildcat and San Pablo Creek drains to San Pablo Bay/SF Bay
Significant flood risk remains upstream of the BNSF railroad in the City of Pinole.
Without this project, the community will continue to have significant flood risk from both Wildcat and San Pablo Creeks.
