Depot Hill Seawall Project Overview and Proposed EIR Scope
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The purpose of the proposed project is to stop sea erosion of the cliff base, and subsequent failure of the bluff top. The proposed project is the constructin of a 24-foot high seawall (seven feet below and 17-feet above average sand levels) for a length of approximately 1,500 feet at the base of Depot Hill. The wall would span the toe of the bluff from Central Avenue to Livermore Avenue. The proposed seawall would be constructed of concrete textured and colored to blend with the existing bluff. A gravity design would be used, with a curve at the top of the wall to direct waves away from the bluff face above the seawall. Engineered catenary curves would form the ends of the seaall and woud be designed to reduce erosion potential at atjacentlocations not directly protected by the seawall.
