Join Valley Water, Santa Clara County Parks and Midpen at a virtual ribbon-cutting event to celebrate the completion of the Rancho San Antonio detention basin and the reopening of the closed trails. The new detention basin will capture and gradually release stormwater, which was the final element of the Permanente Creek Flood Protection Project.
The completed project provides flood protection to approximately 2,200 properties in Mountain View and Los Altos. Rancho San Antonio County Park & Open Space Preserve is one of the many park gems that will serve as a dual-purpose facility, providing flood protection to downstream neighborhoods and recreational space for community members. Among the added project benefits are new ADA restroom facilities, a new replacement parking lot with more paved spaces, new equestrian parking stalls, planting of over 200 native trees and plants, new trail sections, and a new maintenance bridge.
Funds for the Permanente Creek Flood Protection Project come from Measure B, the Safe, Clean Water, and Natural Flood Protection special parcel tax that Santa Clara County voters overwhelmingly approved in 2012.
