WATSONVILLE — The second phase of a project designed to increase water flow and reduce flooding along the Pajaro River is set to begin next month, after several unanimous votes Tuesday by the Flood Control and Water Conservation District Zone 7 board of directors.
Workers will begin fencing the area off on May 13, with excavation work set to begin on June 3. Work along the Salsipuedes Creek Levee will begin Aug. 31.
The board agreed to accept a $3.9 million bid from San Jose-based Pavex Construction for Phase two of the Pajaro River Bench Excavation Project.
The directors also approved a $2.9 million grant agreement with the State of California under Proposition 84, a 2006 law known as the “Safe Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and Coastal Protection Bond Act.”
