Santa Clara River Enhancement and Management Plan
Since 1995, the Santa Clara River Enhancement and Management planning process has produced a number of valuable baseline summaries characterizing biological and water resources, cultural resources, aggregate mining issues and resources, flooding, and access and recreation. Recent products have yielded permitting guides, a workstation at Ventura County's administration building that allows the public to use available information to develop their environmental permit application materials, and a water quality monitoring station at the County line to improve the existing river water quality database. The final SCREMP document is a summary of previous studies, and provides guidance for the preservation, enhancement, and sustainability of the physical, biological, and economic resources that occur within the 500-year floodplain limits of the Santa Clara River mainstem.
