The Freeport Regional Water Authority Intake Project is a great example of civic infrastructure that combines engineering, public art, architecture and landscape architecture in a harmonious manner. Special focus was given to the application of creative finishes, integration of public art, and incorporation of interesting landforms to create a truly unique destination and environment. Landscape and hardscape treatments create visual interest in the public space and levee banks. Bands of glass-seeded colored concrete meander through the plaza like the adjacent Sacramento River snakes through the Central Valley.
