Storm Water


The purpose of this work is to maintain existing storm water facilities by restoring their original design capacity to provide public safety and protection of property. The City must routinely maintain the drainage channels through periodic removal of trash, debris, vegetation and accumulated sediment.

Prior to any maintenance activity, detailed hydrological, biological and cultural studies are conducted to identify:

Chollas Channel Maintenance

The project provides for the periodic removal of sediment, hydrophytic vegetation, trash, and debris from a mostly concrete-lined storm water channel in Chollas Creek. The Project will temporarily affect 0.14 acre of errant wetland vegetation that is growing on accumulated sediment within 3,000 linear feet of cement drainage channel.

The effects of the maintenance will be mitigated by the restoration and enhancement of 0.34 acre in the San Diego River near Qualcomm Stadium.

On December 22, 2010, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board and the California Department of Fish and Game were notified that these storm water facilities in Alvarado Creek had overtopped and were flooding adjacent properties. As a result, that situation demanded immediate action to prevent or mitigate loss of, or damage to, life, health, property and essential public services.
