The goal of this project is to improve the storm water infrastructure, pedestrian safety and connectivity, and the naturalization of Paradise Creek in the areas of National City surrounding Kimball Elementary School. Due to dated infrastructure, the area of interest is subjected to extreme flooding as the result of: a) heavy rain which exceeds the design criteria for the current storm water infrastructure, and b) unexpected high tidal flows which causes water from the local bay to run in the opposite direction of natural flow down the creek. This flooding has generated unsafe conditions for pedestrians and has also caused extensive damage to the surrounding businesses and residences.
