Document Description
The project would implement structural improvements to the existing SCR-3 levee to allow for FEMA certification. Between Bailard Landfill and N. Ventura Rd. (reaches 1-3) two options and considered. Option 1A (Full Levee System) adds fill material and riprap to raise the existing levee (8,875 feet) with one tie-in to Bailard Landfill. Option 1B (Minimum Levee System) adds fill material along a portion of the existing levee (3,575 feet), with tie-ins to Bailard, Coastal, and Santa Clara Landfills. The existing River Ridge Golf Course swale would be filled in. Between N. Ventura Rd. and the UPRR bridge (Reach 4), a 950-foot long floodwall would be constructed on the river side of the road with a visible height of 6 feet; a flood gate would be installed across N. Ventura Rd. and then a 4- to 6-foot floodwall would be constructed on the south side of N. Ventura Rd. for 860 feet.
