As in-kind match, City of Santa Cruz will dedicate ~0.5 cfs during low flow season in two important cold-water tributaries (Pogonip & Redwood creeks). Dedication involves the City's riparian rights & will be formalized via a 20-yr forbearance agreement.
Project will install a water level control structure - a passive, head-driven pipe drain system - in the San Lorenzo River lagoon that will provide a stabilized water elevation of 5.0 feet and prevent the need for artificial breaching of the lagoon.
