ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The Alameda County Flood Control Agency (ACFCA) and Water Conservation 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.
  • The Corps continues to monitor the inclination of the NFS towards execution of the FCSA; however the NFS appears to want to withhold engaging the Corps in a Feasibility Study (FS) until the results of a similar FS (Estudillo Canal), for which they are the NFS, is known. The Estudillo Canal study has hydrology and urban flooding problems that are representative of those found in the Laguna Creek watershed. The NFS wants to fund and complete the Estudillo Canal first.
  • SPD  inactivated this study in May 2010.
