The flood-prone Belmont Creek and another channel along Holly Street near Highway 101 in San Carlos are set for some major dredging work as they are currently filled with sediment, vegetation and debris that cause water flows to “choke” when moving through the channels.

The San Carlos City Council is set to approve a $1.7 million contract at its Monday night meeting to remove the sediment that has caused some big floods on Industrial Road when the channels overflow.

A portion of the 101-Holly East/West Channel is in Redwood City, which will chip in approximately $200,000 for the sediment removal.

The city has experienced flooding and drainage issues at multiple locations along Industrial Road, according to a staff report by Public Works Director Jay Walter.
