PETALUMA RIVER
CONSTRUCTION


PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

The Petaluma River flows southward through the City of Petaluma, which is approximately 35 miles NNW of San Francisco, California, and drains into San Pablo Bay. The Locally Preferred Plan (LPP) includes improvements to a 3,500-foot section of the Petaluma River that flows through residential and commercial developments near Lakeville Avenue and the confluence with Lynch Creek. The project will provide the following levels of protection: (1) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 100-year flood to year 2005 under general plan build-out; and (2) FEMA 40-year flood by the year 2040, assuming residential and commercial development of the watershed continues at the current pace.
