San Pedro Creek, Pacifica, Sec. 205

SAN PEDRO CREEK
CONTINUING AUTHORITY, SECTION 205

PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

San Pedro Creek lies approximately 13 miles south of San Francisco in the Linda Mar area of Pacifica, California.  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, Continuing Authorities Program (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 completed their work on the Highway 1 Bridge in early 2016.

FY 18 AND FY 19 ACCOMPLISHMENTS

  • Working with PDT and sponsor to resolve PCA amendment for work in-kind crediting to the sponsor.
  • Sponsor sent letter to the Corps on 3 Jan 2017 requesting work in-kind crediting and also to close out this project without any further work or expend any more funding.
  • PDT to resolve O&M Manual vs. O&M Consideration document to the sponsor for closeout and termination of this project. 

ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The City of Pacifica is the NFS.
  • Reconnaissance phase was 100% Federal and does not count in the overall cost share.
  • Because the Federal project cost approaching the CAP Section 205 limit in 2003 the completed portion of the project did not turn over to the NFS officially with an Interim O&M Manual.
  • An AE contract was issued at the end of FY13 to assist in the close out documentation for this project by 30 Jun 2014, but there were too many issues with the closeout.
  • The NFS is eager to close out and terminate this project and not be held liable for the completed portion of this project.
  • The PCA did not allow work in-kind crediting and will need to be amended to give the sponsor their appropriate work in-kind credit.
  • PDT still in discussion on O&M Manual vs. O&M Consideration document to provide to the sponsor. 
  • There is no additional funding to work in the O&M Manual.
