The Ardenwood Creek Flood Protection and Restoration Project will restore flood water capacity and conveyance, restore and enhance aquatic habitats, and provide long-term vegetation management along Ardenwood Creek between Tupelo Street and downstream of Paseo Padre Parkway, in Fremont, Alameda County, California.
Cull Creek Dam has been declared seismically unstable during a major earthquake. The Cull Creek Dam Spillway Modification and Creek Restoration Project will address this seismic instability while modifying the water flow to allow natural movement of sediment downstream. When finished, the Cull Creek Reservoir will be converted back to an earthen creek, which will improve aesthetics and natural habitat restoration.
Over time, silt deposits—cause by particles of soil, sand, and other matter that settle in water, eroded from upstream watershed—obstruct and reduce a channel’s capacity to convey flow. The Damon Slough Desilting Project will remove the silt and sediment build up on flood control channel’s bottom, restore the channel’s capacity to contain and convey storm water flows and minimize potential for flooding on the adjacent properties.
The Russ Road Discharge Pipe Improvement Project will improve the Russ Road Pump Station’s ability to minimize surface flooding along Industrial Parkway and Russ Road during high storm flow events. Work involved includes the reconstruction of the pump station outfall structure, the installation of 580 feet of new 42” diameter reinforced concrete pipe, and construction of 4 manhole structures.
This vegetation management project will minimize potential damage to properties and potential injuries to adjacent residents as a result of falling hazardous trees along San Leandro Creek. As part of the hazardous tree removal and pruning, two new access ramps will be constructed at the end of Huff Avenue and Cary Drive to facilitate the removal and pruning work.
Ward Creek is a large man-made creek in the City of Hayward, adjacent to Industrial Parkway, and provides drainage for a 1,000 acre watershed.
The Ward Creek Flood Control and Restoration Improvements Project includes the construction of a floodwall, re-construction of existing storm drain pipe outfall structures, replacement of the existing asphalt bike path, preservation of existing mature trees in good condition, and removal and replacement of trees in poor condition. All project features will improve flood protection in the area by minimizing channel banks overflowing during large storm events.
