Oak Park Green Streets Urban Retrofit

The Oak Park Green Streets Urban Retrofit project is located in the unincorporated community of Oak Park in the County of Ventura, California within the Malibu Creek Watershed (MCW). This urban retrofit project includes twenty distributed modular wetlands installed within the County’s right-of-way to treat nuisance flows from residential areas. The phase I of the project, installation of 10 modular wetlands was completed in November 2017. Phase II of the project is scheduled for construction in 2019. The total project will treat dry weather runoff from a combined tributary drainage area of approximately 121 acres.
