Document Description
The project consists of the installation of two storm drain outfalls and rock rip-rap on the eastern bank of San Pedro Creek in the City of Santa Barbara on Santa Barbara Airport Property along Fairview Avenue in the City of Goleta. The northern outfall (culvert 1) would involve new construction 70 feet south of the Carson Street/Fairview Avenue intersection. This outfall would enter the Creek through a cement wall in a channelized section of the Creek bank. This outfall would allow for drainage from the north side of the Towbes project to enter San Pedro Creek. The storm water would first travel through a bioswale on the Towbes property. The southern outfall (culvert 4) would replace the existing refused outfall with a new storm drain and rip-rap at a location on the creek 40 feet north of the intersection of Daley Street and Fairview Avenue. This storm water would also have been treated through a bioswale on the Towbes property before entering the storm drain. Approximately 1,500 square feet of creek bank vegetation would be disturbed as a part of the installation of the outfall and rip-rap for culvert 4. The proposed project also includes the restoration of 1,000 square feet of habitat on the bank of San Pedro Creek to mitigate for the loss of habitat associated with the 250 square foot rip-rap headwall.
