Strawberry Creek Management Plan

In 1987, in response to campus and community concerns over the deteriorated environmental quality of Strawberry Creek on the UC Berkeley campus, the campus Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) sponsored a comprehensive study of the creek. The results of the study completed by Robert Charbonneau were published in December 1987 as the "Strawberry Creek Management Plan" (1987 SCMP).

Implementation of the 1987 SCMP significantly improved water quality in Strawberry Creek, as evidenced by the successful reintroduction of locally native fish species to the creek in 1989 - the first resident fish population in the creek in approximately 100 years.
