The City of Richmond, American Rivers, The Watershed Project, Restoration Design Group, the Coastal Conservancy and Contra Costa College have partnered on a multiphase project to restore ecological function to the Rheem Creek watershed while reducing the risk of flooding to nearby residents. The project aims to implement nature-based solutions placed throughout the watershed, benefiting people, wildlife, and the economy by restoring and enhancing riparian habitat, providing open space and educational opportunities, and improving the watershed’s ecological function, all of which will build climate change resilience.
The City of Richmond has received funds from the California Natural Resources Agency for urban flood protection, is wrapping up permitting and getting ready to move forward with construction planned for the summer of 2023! Join us on Zoom to talk more about upcoming construction plans and opportunities for community involvement for the Rheem Creek Project.
