PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Autumn Terrace is a multi-unit housing development constructed in 2006 by KB Home at 12th and Orvis Avenue in San Jose, California. Due to the project’s proximity to Coyote Creek and encroachment on the riparian buffer, approximately 2 acres of riparian restoration and approximately 0.1 acres of wetland bioswale were required to be installed, maintained, and monitored by the Santa Clara Valley Water District and the City of San Jose’s Riparian Ordinance as mitigation for the encroachment. ECI has received excellent feedback from both the regulatory agencies and our client on this project, and the mitigation is on track to meet performance criteria and be signed off as complete within the next year.
