PROJECTS

Alameda Creek Desilting

Silt deposits are a natural occurrence in many of the District’s channels and culverts. Over time, silt deposits—cause by particles of soil, sand, and other matter that settle in water—obstruct and reduce a channel’s capacity to convey flow, and therefore its ability to alleviate flooding. By cleaning out the silt, the District can maintain an adequate level of flood protection.

In fiscal year 2007, the District did a large desilting project along the Alameda Creek Flood Control Channel (also called “Line A”) located in the section near Hesperian Boulevard in Hayward.
