Dear Ms. Blatt,

Thank you for your email. I wholeheartedly agree with you that there are many other options to look at besides the two options the Santa Clara Valley Water District recently proposed. Fortunately, they agree with us, too.

The SFCJPA EIR will analyze all options. We look forward to a continuing analysis and discussion with everyone to reach a solution that protects the sensitive, wonderful habitat of the creek that we all know and love, while providing increased flood protection. Thank you for writing to us.
