The Upper Llagas Creek Flood Prevention Project will addresses storm water conveyance infrastructure for the Upper Llagas Creek Watershed, including the West Little Llagas Creek through Morgan Hill. The Project is owned and managed by Valley Water in partnership with the City of Morgan Hill. The Project will build channels, underground conduits, tunnels, and bridges to capture the flood waters from a 100-year storm event in Morgan Hill and eliminates the recurring flooding in the Downtown and other parts of the City lying in the West Little Llagas Creek watershed. The Project will be constructed in two phases:
Phase 1: Work will occur south of Watsonville Road and is not expected to create significant impacts to Morgan Hill residents. Work is anticipated to begin in the Fall/Winter of 2019.
Phase 2: Work on this phase of the project will create significant impacts to Morgan Hill residents, with major impacts occurring on Hale Avenue from Wright Avenue to Main Avenue, the Main Avenue and Hale Avenue intersection, Del Monte Avenue from 5th Street to Spring Avenue, and the Dunne Avenue and Del Monte Avenue intersection. Timing for the award and construction of this phase of the project is still undetermined, with the earliest possible work commencing in 2020. This page will be updated as the project moves forward.
