Town to repair San Ramon Creek banks

Danville is planning to repair two areas of the western bank of the San Ramon Creek where it abuts Front Street just north of Diablo Road. The slope problems began after a winter storm in late 2005; the bank became saturated with water, which caused the soil to soften and slide, leaving the bank bare and too steep.

A retaining wall will be built to support the road, and erosion control fabric and native planting will be used to stabilize the creek bank. The town was eligible for a grant administered by the Governor's Office of Emergency Services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency since the governor and the president had declared a state of emergency in Contra Costa County.
