Creek Bank Repair Work to be Completed Today, Jan. 18

Emergency work to repair the bank of Carpinteria Creek near 6th Street will be completed by the end of today, Jan. 18. The California State Parks project has involved placement of  approximately 10,000 cubic yards of 2 – 4 foot diameter rock to stabilize about 250 feet of creek bank and protect against further erosion caused in the Jan. 9/10 storms. The severe erosion put the nearby wastewater treatment plant and other public infrastructure at risk, as well as buildings and improvements located along nearby sections of 6th Street and Palm Avenue.
