Document Description
The Ventura County Watershed Protection District is proposing to construct a new bypass storm drain facility to transport floodwaters, sediment, and debris from Fresno Canyon to the Ventura River. The purpose of the project is to reduce the risk of flooding in the community of Casitas Springs and potential flooding closures of SR 33. The facility will be designed to convey the fully bulked flows resulting from the 100-year flood event. A new inlet structure with emergency spillway and rock riprap protection would be constructed in Fresno Canyon upstream (east) of SR 33. A 12-foot diameter reinforced concrete conveyance pipe (total length approximately 975 feet long) would be installed via horizontal boring beneath SR 33 and then via open trench method for the remaining approximately 395 linear feet to the Ventura River. An outlet facility would be constructed in the Ventura River with tie-in to adjacent high ground on the north and south, a cut-off wall along the west edge, and a cut-off wall at the downstream edge of the south tie-in, all consisting of ungrouted 1-ton rock riprap.
