Lower Berryessa Creek Flood Control Project Using Basalite's Articulating Concrete Block Mats

The Santa Clara Valley Water District provides safe and clean water to the Silicon Valley and is recognized as a leading water resource management company. The Lower Berryessa Creek Flood Protection Project is being constructed to increase channel flood capacity and improve the ecology of the creek system. This project will provide 100-year flood protection to approximately 1,800 homes, schools and businesses in Milpitas.

Basalite Building Products' Articulating Concrete Block Mats were selected for the 266,00 square foot project because of Basalite's ability to produce and deliver quality products from their nearby plant in Tracy, CA. The 6 inch closed cell blocks will accommodate vehicular traffic and the open cell blocks will encourage natural vegetation on the slopes.

She appreciates her employees and it shows in the teamwork, attitude and willingness to help the customer.
