ZONE 2 AT A GLANCE
Line C Restoration, San Leandro
In 2009, the District finished an improvement along a roughly 1,000-foot section of the Line C earthen channel near the Bayfair Mall in the Ashland neighborhood of San Leandro, between East 14th Street and 159th Avenue. Eroded channel banks were restored to their original design for effective flood control. Native trees and vegetation were planted to create a more attractive neighborhood setting.
San Lorenzo Creek Restoration & Wetlands
The District’s Clean Water Program is drawing on a federal Coastal Impact Assistance Program grant (administered through the U.S. Department of the Interior) to develop a plan to restore wetlands at the mouth of San Lorenzo Creek as it flows into the Bay in the neighborhood of San Lorenzo. The District hopes to improve the habitat for native plants and animals, and enhance the creek’s stormwater carrying capacity.
In 2006, the District obtained a hydraulics and hydrology report that engineers are reviewing to determine how best to improve the wetlands. Design of the project will proceed once the District identifies what kind of construction and mitigation will be required.
