South San Francisco Bay Shoreline Study

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO BAY SHORELINE STUDY
INVESTIGATIONS

PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

The overall study area is located on the shoreline of South San Francisco Bay, extending from the City of Palo Alto to the City of San Leandro.  This study specifically focused on the town of Alviso and completed in December 2015.  The study investigated flood risk management and ecosystem restoration problems and opportunities, as well as related purposes such as recreation.  Those issues are being addressed through a series of interim feasibility studies that focus on smaller geographic areas within the overall South Bay.
