Pleasanton Levee Repairs Underway

Having just completed repairs to damaged levees caused by winter storms along the Pajaro River and Salsipuedes Creek in Santa Cruz County, the Corps’ San Francisco District is now working to repair levees from the same 2017 storms, this time in the East Bay in Pleasanton, Calif.

USACE said that the work in conjunction with Alameda County started in August and will continue through October, breaking for the rainy season, before resuming next April.

The emergency project is expected to be completed later next year.

The work is similar to the emergency repairs that were carried out at Pajaro and Salsipuedes and falls under a rehabilitation program that provides for the inspection and rehabilitation of flood risk management projects damaged or destroyed by floods and coastal storms.

The Pleasanton project is also noteworthy because in June, Alameda County Zone 7 Public Works Director Joe Seto personally delivered a $3 million check to the Corps, an amount representing the county’s share of the cost of the project, as an expression of gratitude for the Corps’ work.
