Murrieta Creek Flood Control Plan on the Table

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has completed a Draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment/ Environmental Impact Report (SEA/EIR) for the Murrieta Creek Flood Control, Environmental Restoration and Recreation Project associated with the Operation and Maintenance of Phase I and Phase IIA of the project.

This effort will facilitate project turnover of these phases to the non-federal local sponsors, the Riverside County Flood Control and the Water Conservation District, and ensure implementation of long-term operation and maintenance needs.

Since the completion of Phase I in 2004 and subsequent repairs in 2007, no maintenance has occurred within this section of the project.

As a result, sediment build-up has restricted flows and is causing ponding of water within newly constructed Phase IIA.

In addition, new species of concern have since been documented to occur throughout the Murrieta Creek Flood Control, Environmental Restoration project area, including Phase I and the basin area utilized for stockpiling and material storage.

The report, completed in coordination with the Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (RCFC&WCD), is available for public review through  September 3, 2019.
