Document Description
The project proposes to install a stormwater capture facility at Cartan Field, a joint use athletic facility owned by Menlo College and Menlo School, located at 30 Alejandra Avenue, in Atherton, California. The facility would include a diversion structure within Atherton Channel to re-direct all dry-weather urban runoff and a portion of wet-weather runoff through a pre-treatment device to remove trash, debris, and sediment before conveying the water into a buried multi-chambered storage facility with a storage capacity of up to nine (9) acre-feet. A pump system sends the water through a filter system to remove mercury and PCBs and then slowly returns filtered water back in to the channel downstream of the diversion structure.
