Document Description
The project includes the construction of a new pump station to convey storm water to San Francisquito Creek from an existing 96"-diameter storm drain serving northeast Palo Alto. The pump station will deliver up to 300 cubic feet per second of storm water to the creek when high creek levels would otherwise preclude the storm drain from emptying. Project elements include construction of a new 8' x 8' box culvert from the existing storm drain outfall to the pump station, a pump station building (consisting of an underground sump, pumps, and a control building housing electrical equipment and a standby emergency generator), and a natural vegetated channel to convey pumped storm water discharge to the creek. The facility will be built on an easement granted to the City of Palo Alto by the Santa Clara Valley Water District.
