 PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

The existing flood-damage-reduction project, located in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties, California, consists of levees and channel improvements on the Pajaro River and Corralitos and Salsipuedes Creeks. The original construction, completed in 1949, was to provide river conveyance equal to the 50‑year flood. While the project remains capable of successfully passing the flow rate for which it was originally designed, the current level of flood protection is estimated to be 8-15 years. This study will develop a locally acceptable plan for flood protection along the Pajaro River and Corralitos and Salsipuedes Creeks to increase the level of flood protection afforded by the project.
