Arroyo Mocho Stanley Reach Riparian and Channel Enhancement Pilot Project
Zone 7 implemented a unique pilot project in 2013 to enhance a section of the Arroyo Mocho flood control channel in Livermore. The agency's Arroyo Mocho Stanley Reach Riparian and Channel Enhancement Pilot Project is located adjacent to Stanley Boulevard between Murrieta Boulevard and Isabel Avenue in the city of Livermore.
The project will demonstrate the feasibility of transforming an earthen trapezoidal channel into a vegetated stream reach exhibiting natural characteristics, while also maintaining its core functionality for flood protection, local sediment management, and groundwater recharge.
