Document Description
The Los Angeles Dept. of Water and Power is proposing to replace the existing marine cables and the marine electrode portions of the Sylmar Ground Return System. The proposed marine facility would originate at the existing Gladstone Vault, from this location, the new marine cables would extend to a new electrode array in the Santa Monica Bay. The marine cables would be installed several feet beneath the ocean floor by means of a water-jet plow to the site of the proposed electrode array, approx. 2 miles offshore. The electrode array would be located on the ocean floor at a depth of approx. 100 feet below mean sea level and consist of 36 concrete vaults, arranged in two rows of 18 vaults. Each vault is 20 feet long 8 feet wide, and four feet high.
