Zone 7’s Arroyo Mocho Medeiros Reach Project (Medeiros Project) is an integral component of our regional flood protection strategy for Arroyo Mocho within Zone 7’s service area.

The project seeks to reduce flood risk by restoring flow to the natural floodplain in the Oak Grove Nature Reserve by lowering the trail. The lowered trail will allow high flows to overtop the trail and enter Oak Grove Nature Reserve. These types of storms are expected to occur in the 10-year to 25-year frequency range.
