San Mateo RCD to start dredging Butano Creek

June 29, 2019by ncdea

CALIFORNIA, San Mateo RCD – Last Friday, the San Mateo Resource Conservation District officially marked the start of the dredging process along lower Butano Creek to alleviate flooding on Pescadero Creek Road and mass fish kills. Experts say the work won’t bring an end to flooding and it won’t save all the fish, but it’s a tangible step Pescadero residents have been anticipating for decades.

The flooding is caused by a buildup of sediment, said Kellyx Nelson, executive director of the San Mateo Resource Conservation District. It has historically isolated the community from the fire station that sits across from the creek. Fish die because oxygen is depleted from the water, and the sediment blocks their migration paths.
