Are you taming Orestimba Creek or just diverting the water somewhere else? We could go farther up Orestimba Creek, build a dam, then release the water at a slower rate to replenish the aquifer, or dump the water into canals for irrigation. Or we could clean the creek so water could flow. I have lived here for 50 years, and I cant remember the creek ever being cleaned. I guess its easier to build levees and let the water flood somewhere else.
