This project would address storm-related flooding that currently occurs in the Basin and proposes to provide other environmental benefits, including restoration and management of water levels within Lake Merced. It would consist of partial replacement of the existing Vista Grande Canal to incorporate a debris screening device, a treatment wetland, and diversion and outfall structures to route some stormwater (and authorized non-storm water) flows from the Vista Grande Canal to Lake Merced; replacement of the existing Vista Grande Tunnel to increase its peak capacity and extend its operating life; and replacement of the existing ocean outfall structure at Fort Funston. Operational components of the project would include management of water elevations in Lake Merced and a Lake Management Plan that would implement water quality BMPs.
