Sediment Assessment for Pescadero Parks Complex
In January 2002, Pacific Watershed Associates (PWA) was contracted by San Mateo County Parks and Recreation (SMCPR) to inventory 65 miles of roads and trails within the Pescadero/Memorial/Sam McDonald County Park Complex for sites of future erosion and sediment delivery to streams, and to prepare a prioritized erosion prevention plan. This project was funded through a CDFG S.B. 271 watershed restoration grant (Contract # P-0030412). This project was specifically aimed at identifying future erosion sources that are impacting fish bearing streams and to develop prescriptions aimed at reducing sediment input to the watershed.
