Document Description
The Ruby Way - Overlook Court Drainage and Erosion Control Project is proposed by the City of South Lake Tahoe to address an undersized storm drain system. The project site is located in an area that consists of primarily single-family residential homes, limited multi - family development, publicly owned parcels, and roadways. The area includes relatively steep terrain. Existing drainage features within the area were installed during construction of the residential subdivision, mostly in the 1960s, and retrofitted under the 1987 "Bijou/Wildwood Erosion Control Project." Seasonal flooding and overland flows occur in the area when the curb and drain inlet collection system fails to capture and convey runoff. The result is erosion along road shoulders, across public lands, and flooding of some apartments and residences. The proposed project is intended to reduce stormwater pollution from City roads. The project design objectives are to keep sediment off of the road surfaces, eliminate flooding, and prevent fine sediment from reaching Lake Tahoe.
