Pinole Creek Watershed Vision Plan -After more than two years of effort, the
Urban Creeks Council is pleased to present the Pinole Creek Watershed Vision Plan. While the UCC and the Restoration Design Group made significant contributions to the planning process from 2001 to present, the report represent decades of work by many individuals, agencies and elected officials. The vision plan has been developed through an open democratic process and reflects a wide range of communal interests that may guide public policy.
In 2010, the City of Pinole and the Contra Costa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (CCCFCD) constructed the Pinole Creek Demonstration Project (PCD) in Pinole, California. The PCD restored tidal marsh and riparian vegetation and reduced flood risk along approximately 1,000 feet of lower Pinole Creek. This document summarizes the history of the channel, the Pinole Creek Watershed Vision Plan, the Lower Pinole Creek Restoration Plan, and the planning, design, construction, and early monitoring results of the Pinole Creek Demonstration Project
