Yay, we're moving on South San Francisco Bay Shoreline Phase I project as construction recently started on Reaches 1-3. After all of the rain, the site has finally dried out enough for the crews to clear and grub the site, install barriers and complete the prep work for removing the boardwalk. Maloney Odin Joint Venture was awarded this contract that consists of constructing approximately 1.6 miles of flood risk management levees with approximately 600,000 cubic yards of fill. Phase I is a multi-agency partnership between USACE, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Valley Water, and the State Coastal Conservancy. The complete project will construct approximately four miles of levees to reduce the risk of tidal flooding to the north San José area between the Alviso Slough/Guadalupe River and Coyote Creek, which includes 2,500 residents of the Alviso community, 3,000 commuters who work and travel through the area, the San José-Santa Clara Regional Wastewater Facility, and the Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center. The project will also restore and enhance 2,900 acres of tidal marsh and related habitat lost due to former salt production activities. Additionally, it will provide improved recreational opportunities and public access along the bay shoreline.

San Francisco District Senior Regulatory Project Manager Dr. Sarah Firestone led a field workshop Dec. 7 on the Corps’ wetland delineation process at a property in Sonoma County. Several recently-hired staff members on the SPN Regulatory Division Team, as well as District Commander Lt. Col. Kevin Arnett, took part in the half-day training in which they learned how to analyze plants and soils, identify hydrology indicators and map a wetland boundary at a tricky site with alkaline soils during a moderate drought.
