Three Creeks Restoration Project - inching toward nature-based flood control

Marsh Creek in Brentwood was engineered to be a drainage ditch back when Brentwood was farm country. but the Contra Costa County Flood Control District, in partnership with American Rivers, is changing that. We tour the Three Creeks Restoration Project to see what is possible within the constraints of suburban living.

I chat with Tim and Sara before we set off.
