EPA will be announcing a $1.5 million grant to American Rivers for the Three Creeks Parkway Restoration Project (Project), as part of a total award of $8 million for eight San Francisco Bay water quality and restoration projects. The Project is a collaborative effort between the Flood Control District and American Rivers along a nearly one mile stretch of Marsh Creek in Brentwood. The Project will widen the creek to provide flood risk mitigation, plant trees and vegetation to provide habitat for fish and wildlife, and provide recreational opportunities.

With this contribution from EPA, the project has reached 92% of its needed funding. This grant is a significant step closer to beginning project construction in 2020.
