To better protect adjacent properties on both sides of Calleguas Creek between Pleasant Valley Road and Highway 101 in the event of a 100-year flood event, a narrow section of the creek was widened by 90 feet, along with additional bank improvements to increase flow capacity.The improvements benefit more than 900 homes and business in the City of Camarillo by removing them from a special flood hazard zone. The project also preserved native vegetation on approximately half of the west bank.
Who/What: Ventura County Watershed Protection District, VCPWA Director Jeff Pratt, Mayor Kevin Kildee and Supervisor Kathy Long celebrate the completion of Calleguas Creek Project.
When: Friday, April 25, at 10 a.m.
