San Pablo Creek, Sec. 205

SAN PEDRO CREEK
CONTINUING AUTHORITY, SECTION 205

PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION: San Pedro Creek lies in the Linda Mar area of Pacifica, California, along the Pacific coast approximately 13 miles south of San Francisco. The area has been subjected to severe, damaging floods that have negatively affected approximately 100 acres of the City of Pacifica’s downtown businesses and residential community. A portion of the San Pedro Creek Flood Protection, CAP Section 205 Project was constructed between August 1999 and December 2002. The lower section of the project was constructed to include a meandering channel with vegetation habitat to benefit wildlife. An earthen berm was constructed on the northern side of the project to protect the Linda Mar Shopping Center. Caltrans is planning work on the Highway 1 Bridge.
