    5. Contra Costa County Creek Conditions

    6. Flood Control District Role/Responsibility/Opportunity • Manage 72 miles of stream channel • Manage regional detention basins • Watershed-wide planning • C-3/HMP regional facilities

    7. Changing Strategies • Stormwater connectivity or stormwater retention • Armored channels or natural systems • Floodplain function • Land use changes and re-engineered creeks • Maintenance activities

    8. 1800 Historical Coyote Creek Drainage Network

    9. 2005 Modern Coyote Creek Drainage Network

    10. 2005 Unconfined Groundwater Recharge Basin

    11. Las Trampas Creek - 1966

    29. A New Approach • Historic Design Concept - Protect structures and convey stormwater off as fast as possible • New Design Concept - Protect structures and retain stormwater as long as possible

    30. Hydrograph Modification Management • Increase retention time • Increase stream stability • Healthy sustainable watershed • Cumulative improvement

    31. The Impact of Impervious Surfaces

    32. Stream Stability Approach • Historical System • Present System • Compare Past and Present • Understand Changes • Recommendations and Restoration Templates

    33. Sustainable Watershed Creek Stability/Function (Geomorphology) Community Water Quality/Quantity (Hydrology) Habitat (Ecology)

    34. The Future • At the parcel level • LID • Homeowner education • Landscape contractors

    35. The Future • At the Watershed level • 2nd generation facilities • System preservation/ replacement • Clean Water Regional Treatment • Regional retention facilities • The 50 year plan Marsh Creek Reservoir
