Navigating the South San Francisco Bay Shoreline: A Conversation of the Shoreline Project in North San José and Santa Clara County [In-Person Event]

In-Person Forum


Alviso Marina Park

South San Francisco Bay has been long known for its multi-colored salt ponds and for Santa Clara County’s Alviso Marina Park. The South San Francisco Bay Shoreline Project (Phase I) is a multi-agency partnership between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Valley Water, and the State Coastal Conservancy that will construct approximately four miles of levees to reduce the risk of tidal flooding to the north San José area. The project will also restore and enhance 2,900 acres of tidal marsh and improve recreational opportunities and public access along the bay shoreline. Join us for a conversation on the multi-agency project to restore and enhance the shoreline for communities across Alviso, North San José, and the greater South Bay region.
