Document Description
The proposed project would involve rehabilitation of the existing Bluebird Canyon outfall and diversion structure. The existing headwall would be removed and replaced with a new headwall, which would be located on the same footprint and be constructed with concrete, colored to blend aesthetically with the surrounding environment. An intermediate wall would be constructed between the headwall and the outfall and diversion pipes, creating an enclosure for the outfall and diversion pipes. Two Tideflex duckbill valves would be installed on this intermediate wall to allow stormwater to pass through the intermediate wall but prevent the surcharge of sea water, sand, and sediment. A manhole and cover would be located above the outfall and diversion pipes (behind the intermediate wall), with stairs leading to this enclosure.
