Effective. Professional. Experienced.

Boundary Creek is a relatively small subdivision on the banks of Crow Creek in San Leandro. However, strong neighborhood opposition led the RWQCB to impose its strictest wetland and stormwater regulations on project approval. Zentner Planning and Ecology worked with the developer (Mark Pringle Homes) to define a creek conservation area and then designed an innovative stormwater treatment program that included permeable pavements, bioretention strips, and other stormwater treatment features. In recognition of the program’s value, the RWQCB then provided an administrative approval, rather than a more lengthy public hearing process.
