  1. Santa Clara Valley Water DistrictWatershed Stewardship Plans for Lower Peninsula, West Valley, and Guadalupe February 10, 2004District Team Meeting 1

  2. Meeting Objectives • Debrief on Project Status • Get Input to Stakeholder Engagement Strategies C. Clarify Management Issues/Questions D. Get Buy-in on Overall Approach To Compile Existing/Historic Information

  3. Lower Peninsula Watershed Area West Valley Watershed Area Guadalupe Watershed Area

  4. Objectives for 3 Stewardship Plans • Synthesize Existing and Historic Information • Clarify and Identify Watershed Management Problems/Issues • Improve or Develop Stewardship Opportunities

  5. Stakeholder Engagement Strategy

  6. (FMS) (SPW) Others (JPA) Flood Management Subgroup Stewardship Plan Workgroup San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority Offer insight on agency policy direction relevant to stewardship proposals with emphasis on flood protection and habitat preservation issues Lead Stakeholder Process for SP Development Provide insight to Stewardship Plan team on FMS related issues Offer additional perspectives to SP’s work WMI Core Group Guadalupe Adaptive Management Team Continue to support Stewardship Planning Work Offer technical insight on CIP’s and related regulatory compliance issues Includes the whole watershed -monitoring -sedimentation WMI Core Group Continue to support Stewardship Planning Work San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority (JPA) Offer insight on agency policy direction relevant to stewardship proposals with emphasis on flood protection and habitat preservation issues Guadalupe Adaptive Management Team Offer technical insight on CIP’s and related regulatory compliance issues Stewardship Plan Workgroup (SPW) Lead Stakeholder Process for SP Development Includes the whole watershed -monitoring -sedimentation San Francisquito Watershed Council Offer insight on stewardship proposals from the perspective of a watershed-wide, community-based forum with emphasis on integrated, multi-objective solutions Others Offer additional perspectives to SP’s work San Francisquito Watershed Council Relations to Other Groups Offer insight on stewardship proposals from the perspective of a watershed-wide, community-based forum with emphasis on integrated, multi-objective solutions

  7. District Internal Stakeholders

  8. Discussions forStakeholder Engagement Strategy • Management Questions/Issues • Existing Conditions (e.g. where are the hardened channels?) • Issues to be Addressed through the Planning Process (e.g., clarify sensitive areas along the creeks) • Collective Vision for Each Watershed • District Staff Document? • Board Linkage? • WRPC Linkage? • Other key stakeholders?

  9. Coarse Scale Main characteristics of each Watershed Provide foundation for understanding stewardship issues, problems, or opportunities Provide basis for selection of more detailed analysis objectives or areas (e.g., watersheds or creeks - 3) Finer Scale Field Work (new data) for the areas identified Information for conceptual design solutions Overall Approach for Synthesizing Existing Information

  10. Coarse Scale Analysis • Data Compilation • WMI Characterization Report • WMI Assessment Reports • FAHCE Summary Report • SCVURPPP Sediment Impairment Report • GIS Layers – land ownership, zoning, existing and historical land use, imperviousness, mining • Analysis • Longitudinal Profiles 3rd Order+ streams (e.g., main stem, tributaries) • Geomorphic Process Domains; Potential Erosion • Landslide Susceptibility • Identify Data Gaps And Strategize How to Deal with These data gaps

  11. Proposed Finer Scale Analysis • Based on a refined version of model used in Coyote Creek (combined HGM/IBI) • Fill in the Data Gaps for watershed or creeks selected or identified • Model provides more detailed functional analysis than previously available • Model uses existing and newly collected field data • Develop conceptual design solutions

  12. Watershed Summary Tables • Define Impacts from various projects, activities, and policies • Define functional areas for analysis • Identify key issues and management questions • Relates issues and indicators to District Ends policies • Go to Tables (handouts)

  13. Potential Stressors, End Points, and Indicators Note that watershed unit reach descriptions are preliminary and not included here.

  14. Potential Stressors, End Points, and Indicators Note that watershed unit reach descriptions are preliminary and not included here.

  15. Potential Stressors, End Points, and Indicators Note that watershed unit reach descriptions are preliminary and not included here.

  16. Discussions • Plan Outlines • Role of Historical Ecology • Role of Visioning Process
