With the community, the City created a Maintenance and Management Guide for the Baxter Creek Gateway Park that also provides overall guidance for the maintenance of city-owned creeks citywide. The City has also completed an inventory of all City-owned creeks that provides a description of each creek and outlines current maintenance practices and needs as well as identifies future restoration opportunities.
Privately Owned Creeks:
Most of the creeks are located on private property. Their maintenance is the responsibility of the private property owner. Please visit the California Urban Streams Partnership's website for creek maintenance information or to request a FREE consultation as part of their Streamside Management Program for Landowner's in Contra Costa County if there is an issue with the creek (i.e. erosion).
