Santa Cruz Route 17 Sediment Control

Project Description

The project will stabilize the existing cut slope adjacent and above the southbound lanes of SR 17 to reduce sediment discharge into the Carbonera Creek and the San Lorenzo River Watershed. This project will help achieve compliance with the requirements identified by the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board and the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit program.
