Alameda County Water District

Description of Site

Alameda Creek recharge facilities contain three inflatable dams and associated control buildings that are all located within a public use space. Alameda County Water District was concerned with the vulnerability of this space, while recognizing the need to retain the public access.

Security By Design Involvement

SBD completed a requirements analysis for security at this public/county mixed- use site. Interviews were conducted with the Alameda County Water District personnel, East Bay Municipal Utility District representatives, and police departments serving the area to better understand the security issues at the site. A written report was provided to the District.

Following this analysis, SBD was retained to develop three alternatives for security at the site. This report described various combinations of manpower, systems equipment, and procedures that could be considered to mitigate the risks to the District. The report included acquisition costs, sustaining recurring costs, and associated support requirements. A cost benefit analysis to support the recommendation for the best alternative was also prepared for the District.

Of Special Interest

Alameda Creek besides being a watershed for the County, hosts walking and biking trails, public parks, and general picnic areas that are totally open to public use.
