Corte Madera Creek Flood Risk Management Project update, May 2024

Posted on May 22, 2024

Construction of the Granton Park Stormwater Pump Station is substantially complete. PG&E will energize the station soon and the District anticipates completing final pump testing in July 2024. The pump station is expected to be operational for the coming winter season. 

In February 2024, the District began working with a consultant to provide Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) floodplain management recommendations and strategy in collaboration with the Town of Ross and the Town of San Anselmo to comply with FEMA guidelines and municipal requirements. 

The current construction schedule for the remaining components of the overall Corte Madera Creek Flood Risk Management Project is on hold until the FEMA process has been completed. 

The District continually applies for grants. The status of the three most recent applications is: 

  • The US Fish and Wildlife Service’s National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grant Program approved $575K in funding for the District’s Corte Madera Creek Flood Risk Management Project’s Lower College of Marin Wetland restoration project. 
  • The District’s application for the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program was waitlisted.  
  • Grant funding through the NOAA Restoring Fish Passage Through Barrier Removal Grant application is still pending a decision.
