Touring OCTA’s Dam Removal Project in Trabuco Canyon

Several OC Go Environmental Oversight Committee (EOC) members, including OCTA Director and EOC Chair Brian Goodell, recently toured an OCTA-funded restoration project.

Through OC Go, Orange County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements, OCTA contributed funds to help remove dams in the San Juan, Trabuco, and Holy Jim creeks. This effort enables endangered species, like the native Arroyo chub fish, to move more freely and naturally and contributes to restoring Orange County’s ecosystem.

OCTA safeguards the environment throughout the year with programs that preserve and restore open-space land, keep trash out of waterways, and protect Orange County’s coastline.

OC Go is also known as Measure M.
