The Pacheco Marsh portion benefited from the acquisition and donation by Marathon Petroleum Company of an 18 acre parcel that greatly expanded restoration and recreation opportunities.
Lower Walnut Creek Restoration was fortunate to participate in SFEI's Flood Control 2.0, which was funded by an earlier round of the US EPA's San Francisco Bay Water Quality Improvement Fund.
We thank our funders and partners for their continued support.
Flood Control 2.0
SFEI's Flood Control 2.0 aims to accomplish improved sediment transport through flood control channels, improved flood conveyance, and the restoration and improvement of resilient habitats in the bay area. The effort is centered around promoting sustainable solutions for habitat improvement and creating a cooperative network of interagency ecological resilience projects and resources.
By providing critical information to flood control and restoration projects, Flood Control 2.0 serves as a progressive resource for long-term, multi-benefit project planning.
The Lower Walnut Creek Restoration project is pleased to have been chosen as a Flood Control 2.0 implementation project, and has benefited from the program's resiliency assessment and vision planning process.
