Project: San Luis Obispo County Proposition 1E Proposal - Flood Control Zone 1/1A Waterway Management Program, Alternative 3a Project

Description: The Project includes the following key project elements: 1) Manage riparian vegetation annually to improve flood capacity; 2) Support a continuous canopy cover of mature trees and fill existing gaps while encouraging species diversity; 3) Conduct sediment management in a way that will improve flood capacity and enhance geomorphic function so as to minimize future sediment accumulations that require intensive management; and 4) Raise levees throughout the flood control channel to ultimately achieve a channel capacity that will protect the adjacent community and farmland up to a 10 year flood event.
