Description
Abstract: Santa Clara County is a natural floodplain with a history of periodic flooding. Over the decades, flood management has evolved from farmers' levees to concrete channels to natural flood protection. Lower Coyote Creek (Alviso) and Downtown Guadalupe River are two success stories. In the future, we look to have better planning, guidance, and projects.
