Project: Fernwood Ave Development and Water Quality Improvement Project

Description: The Lynwood Park Infiltration, Restoration, and Water Quality Improvement Project was moved to Fernwood Avenue and State Street, which is an extension of the existing Lara Linear Trail in the City of Lynwood. The reason for the move is due to the lack of permeability at the original site near City Hall. In an effort fulfill grant requirements for the completion of the project scope of work the City identified the new site at Fernwood Ave and State Street and conducted a series of percolation tests and have submitted their results. Based on the results of the boring percolation test, the site soils are coarse-grained and have high percolation rates for infiltration systems in general.
