What is the County of Santa Cruz Board of Directors Flood Control and Water Conservation District 7?
Zone No. 7 (“Zone 7”) was created on December 17, 1991 through separate resolutions adopted by the Santa Cruz County Flood Control and Water Conservation District and by the City of Watsonville. Zone 7 was formed for the primary purpose of improving the flood carrying capacity of the Pajaro River, Salsipuedes Creek and Corralitos Creek system within the Pajaro Valley floodplain. This is achieved through funding the required Local Sponsor share of the on-going feasibility study currently being undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and through funding the maintenance of and minor capital improvements to existing drainage facilities within the zone’s boundaries.
A portion of Zone 7 revenues are also specifically set aside to fund capital improvement projects within the zone’s boundaries. These projects are intended to limit the potential for flooding caused in part by continued urbanization within the floodplain and increased stormwater runoff from additional impervious areas.
