This week, Public Sediment received $31.4 million in implementation funding from the State of California.
Our local team members joined State Senator Bob Wieckowski for the ceremony. Public Sediment for Alameda Creek was developed as part of the year-long Resilient By Design: Bay Area Challenge. SCAPE led the team, which also includes Arcadis, the Dredge Research Collaborative, TS Studio, the UC Davis Department of Human Ecology and Design, Cy Keener, and the Architectural Ecologies Lab, working closely with Alameda County Flood Control District and local partners.
The project’s main aim is to recalibrate sediment flows along the lower watershed of Alameda Creek, enhancing the delivery of sediment to the marshes and Baylands while enhancing social connectivity in the surrounding urban areas and habitat for migrating steelhead trout native to the area. The project has received multiple awards, including a 2018 Best of Design Award from The Architect’s Newspaper for analog representation and a 2018 AIA California Merit Award in Urban Design.
Stay tuned for upcoming project updates.
