Arcade Creek Watershed Plan

Sacramento, California

Foothill Associates prepared Phase 1 of the Arcade Creek Watershed Plan which included baseline assessment of watershed conditions and identified high priority projects for future implementation. This plan provides an overview of resources in the watershed based upon existing information; establishes overriding goals based upon values expressed by watershed stakeholders; and presents a series of recommendations for improving flood protection, enhancing water quality and habitat, and providing increased recreation opportunities. The Arcade Creek Watershed Group was also initiated as part of this project, and numerous stakeholder meetings were held to solicit input on the plan and watershed issues. A baseline GIS was also developed and used to analyze and map soils, topography, land use, sensitive habitats, pollutant loading, hydrology, and recreational facilities.
