Document Description
The project would install infrastructure for the collection and transport of nuisance groundwater and surface water flows with high nitrate and selenium concentrations to Orange County Sanitation District for treatment. The project would divert flows from four sources; Caltrans' Ground Water Treatment Facility, Como Channel, Edinger Circular Drain, and Valencia Drain. The project would include installation of a pipeline conveyance system with diversion structures and ancillary support infrastructure in the cities of Irvine and Tustin. The proposed pipeline system would begin at the existing Caltrans' GWTF, located at the Walnut Avenue bridge crossing over Peters Canyon Channel in Tustin, then would connect to the three proposed storm drain diversion structures at Como Channel, Edinger Circular Drain, and Valencia Drain, and would discharge into the OCSD sewer in Main Street in Irvine.
