Project Background

The purpose of the CWMP is to fulfill General Plan Implementation Action CE-IA-3. CE-IA-3 requires a citywide Creek and Watershed Management Plan be prepared to provide detailed standards of acceptable practices for protecting the ecological function, water quality, and drainage and flood control function of Goleta’s creeks and watersheds.

To date, there has been a kick-off meeting with City staff and the consultant team and an inventory of relevant information has been compiled. Field work to gather detailed data on the City's creeks began on August 29th and will continue over the course of the next several weeks.
