Document Description
South Orange County Wastewater Authority proposes to close and remove the privately owned bridge that crosses Aliso Creek on AWMA Road. The wooden bridge was originally constructed in 1979 to allow workers access to the SOCWA Coastal Treatment Plant (CTP). A structural evaluation determined that the bridge was nearing the end of its useful life. Because permanent access is now available to the CTP from Aliso Creek Road and given the condition and safety concerns of the wooden bridge structure, SOCWA plans to permanently close and remove the AWMA Bridge.
