By creating this online repository, we at Groundwork San Diego want to make available all the relevant information that is related to our beloved Creek. The repository includes a broad range of resources including planning studies, environmental reports, and maps specific to the Chollas Creek Watershed. In addition, you can find general watershed resource planning documents.  We believe that by collecting and sharing valuable information with groups working in the watershed we will collectively achieve a common goal, which is the protection and restoration of this important watershed for current and future generations to come. 

In the following table you can find the contents of the repository including documents related to past and current Chollas Creek projects undertaken by Groundwork San Diego.  The first column indicates the folder in which the document is contained and the second column indicates the GWSD project the document pertains to. The search button will allow you to filter through all the documents and find what you are looking for with only a few key words. We hope you find what you need, feel free to contact us if you don’t!
