Guide to San Francisco Bay Area Creeks

Alameda Creek
Flood Control Channel
Watershed Map

All these watersheds were distributaries of Alameda Creek; when the creek would flood out of its primary channel it would pour into these distributary channels. As recently as the 1950s these creeks would carry off waters when Alameda Creek flooded. Now the flows of Alameda Creek are held within the flood-control channel, whose watershed is in yellow, and the rest of the watersheds now carry mostly local urban runoff.
