    The purpose of the Santa Clara River Enhancement and Management Plan (SCREMP) is to provide a guidance document 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 that will be of benefit to stakeholders when planning and implementing projects and activities.  

    In addition, the SCREMP Project Steering Committee’s “Statement of Purpose for the Enhancement and Management Plan” is as follows: “The Project Steering Committee (PSC) will develop and seek support for a dynamic, long-ranged Enhancement and Management Plan for the Santa Clara River.  The study process will focus on improving coordination and information exchanges among all PSC members and on resolving conflicting uses along the River.  The study will give balanced consideration to habitat objectives, natural river processes, private property rights, economic interests, and community objectives in support of preparing a plan that contains mechanisms for implementing the PSC’s recommendations.”

    The final SCREMP document summarizes reports that were prepared in 1995 and 1996, characterizing biological and water resources, cultural resources, aggregate, flooding, and access and recreation.  More recent products include wetland plant and environmental permitting guides for stakeholders, a workstation at the County that will allow the public to use available information to develop their environmental permit application materials, and a water quality monitoring station at the Los Angeles/Ventura County line to improve the existing river water quality database.
