Document Description
The proposed Project involves construction and operation of major storm water management improvements for the Bijou Creek watershed. One component of the Project is replacement of the bijou Creek culvert from Fairway Drive, beneath the Bijou Center, and to the outfall at Lake Tahoe. The new 7 - by 2.5-foot precast concrete double box culvert will replace the existing deteriorated system, improving flow conveyance and reliability. The proposed Project also includes construction of a storm water collection and treatment system for runoff from the urbanized Bijou Commercial Core. The new system consists of storm drains, treatment vaults, and a pumping station. Following pretreatment of storm water in the treatment vaults, the water would be pumped in a force main to a series of five infiltration basins located on U.S. Forest Service parcels (near Walkup Road, for storage and infiltration. The basins would not be specifically designed to overflow, but would be equipped with emergency outfalls. These outfalls would convey storm water to Bijou Meadow, where it would be dispersed through a series of grass-lined swales in an emergency overflow scenario.
