"The proposed project will utilize the footprint of an existing 37,000 SF parking lot to capture and infiltrate approximately 182 acre feet of dry weather urban runoff and first flush storm water into the City's groundwater each year. This is water that would otherwise flow untreated to the Bolsa Chica Channel and eventually to the Pacific Ocean. The City will remove existing asphalt concrete (AC) pavement, install an underground, pre-cast
infiltration/retention facility and larger storm water pipes, and repave the lot utilizing pervious surfaces. The proposed system will allow water that flows into the Watershed to instead percolate into the groundwater, removing pollutants. Signage will educate over 4,000 monthly park visitors about methods to reduce storm water pollution."
