El Rio Retrofits for Groundwater Recharge
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The County of Ventura has proposed a project to retrofit existing County Roads with stormwater infiltration systems to recharge groundwater Oxnard Plain Forebay Basin and improve surface water quality in downstream receiving waters. The project includes removing existing sidewalk, parkway and roadway hardscapes, and replacing this infrastructure with pervious concrete gutters within the existing developed roadway right-of-way. The project will infiltrate stormwater runoff for groundwater recharge and improve receiving water quality by removing bacteria, nitrogen, metals, and other urban pollutants typically present in the runoff from the existing urban impervious surface areas. All proposed work would occur within the existing developed roadway right-of-way. No protected heritage trees would be removed as a part of the project, and any non-native landscape trees removed during the construction would be replaced with an equivalent tree type.
