About the Project
Zone 7’s Arroyo Mocho Medeiros Reach Floodplain Reconnection Project (Medeiros Project) is an integral component of our regional flood protection strategy for Arroyo Mocho within Zone 7’s Service Area. The project is located within the Medeiros Reach (N/S College Avenue to Anza Way and E/W Arroyo Road to Holmes Street).
The Medeiros 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.
