SONOMA CREEK & TRIBUTARIES
INVESTIGATIONS

PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

The study area is located in Sonoma County, California. The Sonoma Creek watershed drains a 170-square-mile area into the northern reaches of the San Francisco Bay estuary. This study was originally funded as part of the overall San Pablo Bay Watershed Management Study as provided in the Energy & Water Appropriations Act of 1998. The findings of this study indicate a Federal interest in providing solutions for environmental restoration and flood protection to Sonoma Creek and its tributaries.

The Non-Federal Sponsor (NFS) and its partners are in the process of identifying several potential solutions to minimize the flooding problem caused by Sonoma Creek in the Schellville area, which runs along Highway 121 approximately eight miles north of San Pablo Bay.
