Overview

The City of San Luis Obispo and the County Flood Control District are working together to mitigate future flooding.  The objective of this Waterways Management Project is to lower the “n” value in the channel to increase capacity and thereby reduce future flooding.  To do this, the City of San Luis Obispo is planning to remove accumulated sediment from five separate locations within San Luis Obispo Creek and Prefumo Creek.  The City selected Cannon to provide engineering plans as well as to help obtain grading and environmental permits from the Army Corp, the Regional Water Quality Control Board, and Fish & Game.  Cannon’s scope of work included pre- and post-construction topographic surveys; grading plans with cross sections and cut & fill quantities; SWPPP; Erosion and Sediment Control plans; and permit application preparation.  The complexity of the project was increased because of the extremely tight deadline and environmental sensitivity.
