Creek Description

Rheem Creek runs from the City of Richmond (just East of Highway 80) through the Cities of Pinole and San Pablo before entering the San Francisco Bay south of Point Pinole. One third of its 3 miles are culverted under residential areas, while the remainder of the creek is above ground but contained in concrete and earthen channels. 50% of its watershed (the land that drains to the creek) is covered by impervious surfaces such as roads and houses.
