Streamside Management For Landowners in Contra Costa County or SMPL

The California Urban Streams Partnership is working with Contra Costa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District of the Public Works Department to assist properties located along the creeks with erosion and flooding problems. This is a free service funded by the county.  The CUSP will visit homes and help identify what is causing the problems and suggest the steps for how the property owner can solve them. We can provide instruction in using soil bioengineering solutions using plants. These systems have a successful performance record for solving tough erosion problems and have been adopted by engineering agencies such as the US Army Corps of Engineers and Natural Resources Conservation Service.  Appointments with CUSP staff can be made by emailing:
