beach stormwaterIn order to comply with the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Permit (Order No R4-2012-0175) and the Marina del Rey Enhanced Watershed Management Program Plan, the City is proposing the Washington Boulevard Stormwater and Urban Runoff Project. 

Approximately 40 acres of City of Culver City jurisdiction is within 1,409 acres of the Marina del Rey Watershed with our City’s stormwater runoff draining directly into the Marina del Rey Harbor. The goal of the Project is to reduce the pollutants from reaching the Marina del Rey Harbor and our beaches through the discharge of stormwater and dry-weather runoff.    

The Project will capture stormwater and urban runoff before it enters the storm drain system and store it in underground sealed storage tanks. The retained runoff will be pumped to the sanitary sewer where it will be conveyed to City of Los Angeles’ Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant for treatment. 

The Project is located on Washington Boulevard from Lincoln Avenue to the west (within the City of Los Angeles), and Redwood Avenue (Culver City) to the east, see Project Map.

Construction is slated to begin in Summer 2019. Please attend the Tuesday, April 30, 2019 community meeting from 7 pm to 9 pm at Coeur d' Alene Elementary School Auditorium, 810 Coeur d' Alene Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90291. The meeting will provide an opportunity to learn about the project's clean water and urban greening elements and the project's potential traffic and parking impacts during construction.

Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines, an Initial Study (IS) determined that the project will not have a significant adverse impact on the environment with mitigation incorporation. A Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) finding is adequate.

For more information, please call Lee Torres, Senior Civil Engineer, Public Works Environmental Programs and Operations Division at (310) 253-6457.
