ARROYO DE LA LAGUNA
INVESTIGATIONS

PROJECT LOCATION AND Description

The Arroyo de la Laguna, which is the main tributary to Alameda Creek, is a southward-flowing stream in Alameda County that collects and drains runoff from Livermore, Dublin, and Pleasanton.  The upper basin is approximately 15 miles wide by 45 miles long, and it covers about 398,000 acres.  The Reconnaissance Study would evaluate Federal interest in solutions to potential flooding and associated damage to surrounding riparian habitat.

ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The Zone 7, Alameda County Flood Control and Water District is the NFS.
  • This project did not receive funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), Title IV, Pub. L. No. 111-5, 123 Stat. 115, Feb. 17, 2009. 
  • Late FY 03 appropriations allowed only a draft 905(b) report before the end of that Fiscal Year. Subsequently, there has been no funding or activity.
  • Without funding, it becomes impossible to complete the 905(b) report, negotiate the FCSA, and initiate the Feasibility Study in FY13.
  • Studies for projects on Arroyo Las Positas and Arroyo Mocho, which were originally intended for the Continuing Authorities Program (CAP), may yet be included in this Reconnaissance study because the original Authorization included the entire watershed.

CONGRESSIONAL INTEREST

  • Deputy for Project Management, Arijs A. Rakstins, (415) 503-6720
