Antelope Creek Flood Control Project

What is it?

  • A regional flood control project, which includes the addition of two fish-friendly, on-channel weirs across Antelope Creek
  • The first weir or "Upper Weir" was completed in February 2018. The District is seeking grant funding to complete the second "Lower Weir"
  • Slight increase to the footprint of the existing FEMA recognized 100-year floodplain limits
  • Provides substantial mitigation for increases in urban runoff and peak flood flow increases due to new and existing development in the watershed
  • Provides as much as 800 cubic feet per second of 100-year peak flow decrease in downtown Roseville
  • Includes stream channel and habitat restoration components
  • Includes removal of non-native plants and re-planting with natives
  • Includes improved public access and educational opportunities for the public along the existing multi-use recreational trail
  • Funded through grants from the State Department of Water Resources (DWR), Proposition 84  IRWM program, the DWR Urban Streams Restoration Program and watershed mitigation fees collected within the Dry Creek Trust Fund
  • For further project description see 2011 Update to the Dry Creek Watershed Flood Control Plan (pdf 56.9 Mb)
