Torrence Creek Stream Restoration
Focused on the client’s success, the Kimley-Horn Torrence Creek team prepared the ARRA applications and obtained Section 404/401 and erosion control permits for this project in the three-week period.
Kimley-Horn was selected to provide planning, permitting, easement plans, construction drawings, and construction management for 3 miles of restoration of the Torrence Creek system. The project incorporated the stream design with the proposed County greenway, including five pedestrian bridges. The firm was also responsible for permitting the restoration design and obtaining FEMA permits for the stream restoration and greenway. Kimley-Horn helped the County apply for and obtain American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding for “green” projects to fund the construction. Kimley-Horn also was responsible for permitting the restoration design and obtaining FEMA permits for the stream restoration and greenway.
The project generated 7,980 stream mitigation units for the City’s umbrella bank. Other portions funded by CWMTF and ARRA were not used for mitigation credit.
