Deer Island Flood Detention Basin

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 5/17/2016


The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to authorize various budget actions to transfer an unspent grant allocation to Novato Flood Control Zone 1 to assist with the funding of a contract with Schaaf and Wheeler Inc., for the Novato Deer Island flood detention basin. In March 2016, the basin was recommended as a short-term priority under the draft Novato Creek Hydraulic Study Analysis of Alternatives. The basin has the potential to significantly reduce flooding within the city limits of Novato.


The Board authorized the budget actions.
