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.
