Project: City of Anaheim - La Palma & Richfield Stormwater Construction Project

Description: "The main purpose of the proposed project is to capture and reuse storm water beyond the capacity of the existing storm drain system in the La Palma Avenue and Richfield Road neighborhood by installing a diversion system that will transport storm water from the project area to the Orange County Water District (OCWD)'s Foster-Huckleberry Recharge Basin. The Basin has the capacity to receive the additional storm water from the area, up to and including a 25-year storm event, and will allow the water to slowly percolate into the groundwater, thereby naturally filtering and purifying it. The project will replace and extend an inadequate, under-sized storm drain system at the intersection of La Palma Avenue and Richfield Road. The project will infiltrate approximately 74 acre feet of dry weather urban runoff and first flush storm water into the City's groundwater yearly. This is water that would otherwise flow untreated to the Santa Ana River and eventually to the Pacific Ocean."
