Projects > Rose Creek Watershed Major Restoration Project Underway (City of San Diego: University City, Clairemont and Mission Bay)

For over five years, on behalf of its client the non-profit San Diego Earthworks, LCB has been acting as project manager of the Rose Creek Watershed Opportunities Assessment (Assessment), an inter-disciplinary stakeholder-driven project to enhance the 36-square mile watershed which begins on MCAS Miramar with the headwaters of Rose and San Clemente creeks and ends where Rose Creek enters Mission Bay.  The development of the Assessment followed a three step process: first, a review of existing conditions in the watershed; second, public review of that existing conditions report, including public workshops and three, development of the Assessment with recommendations for further action. The Assessment, which includes recommended actions to improve the quality of the natural lands, water,  recreation and public safety of the watershed, was accepted by the San Diego City Council in 2008. LCB is now working with stakeholders to implement the recommendations. The Assessment identified restoration opportunities, including the creation and enhancement of wetlands; these could also serve as mitigation opportunities.
