PROJECTS

Line I Flood Protection

In fall 2007, the District completed capacity improvement project along Line I from Laguna Creek (also called Line E) at Montrose Avenue upstream to the Southern Pacific Railroad (SPRR) tracks. The project has enhanced flood protection in growing Fremont neighborhoods.

Along roughly 400 feet of the Line I earthen channel, the District raised the height of the banks by about two feet to keep stormwater from overflowing. Along another 550-foot section of Line I from Hopkins Street to the SPRR, a concrete-block floodwall was built atop the channel banks. Embankment slopes were re-graded and drains were installed to better control and direct runoff into the channel.


New and Ongoing Projects in Zone 6

Banks were raised along a portion of Line I to improve flood control.
