Creek and Watershed Projects

Oakland's creeks are a valuable resource to the City. Creeks help to remove water pollutants, provide flood control and stormwater drainage, offer wildlife habitat and improve quality of life by enhancing access to our natural environment.

With funds from county, state and federal grants – and most importantly, with community support – the Watershed and Stormwater Management Division is restoring Oakland creeks, increasing nature access through trails, installing watershed education resources in the community, conducting water quality improvement projects, and protecting natural habitats in Oakland.
