Southern Marin Watershed Guide: Planning for Floods

This guidebook tells the story of our watershed and the flood risks we face together. Flooding affects our quality of life and livelihood: it threatens our homes and our businesses, and can impact everything we do in our normal day-to-day life, from getting our children to school to our access to emergency services. 


Draft Appraisal-Level Flood Study - Arroyo Corte Madera del Presidio, January 2013

This report documents flooding problems and describes measures to reduce flooding and flood damage resulting from breaching of the banks of the main stem Arroyo Corte Madera del Presidio (ACMdP) and its major tributaries Old Mill Creek and Warner Canyon Creek. This report focuses on the flow capacity of the creek and develops a range of potential solutions to reduce flooding upstream of Camino Alto.
