Storm Drain Replacement by Hotel Del Coronado at Coronado Bayfront
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project would involve replacement of an existing storm drain to remove the aging pipelines by Hale Engineering on behalf of Hotel Del Coronado (Applicant) in the City of Coronado, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve demolition of an existing 24-inch reinforced concrete pipe storm drain and installation of a new 30-inch high density polyethylene plastic pipe between the east and west right-of-way beneath Orange Avenue, and construction of a new U-type headwall at the existing outfall at Glorietta Bay. Of the approximately 177 linear feet of storm drain replacement, approximately 63 linear feet of the pipe is located on San Diego Unified Port District (District) tidelands. The storm drain would connect to the proposed U-type headwall at an existing outfall into Glorietta Bay; the remainder of the proposed project improvements would be constructed within the City of Coronado. All work on District tidelands would occur within existing easements conveyed to the City of Coronado. See NOE for full details.
