Construction Begins This Month on Venice Stormwater Diversion System

penmar

The City of Los Angeles is beginning the construction of a stormwater capture system in and around the Penmar Recreation Center grounds in Venice. The project will install: a diversion structure at Frederick Street; a new pipe connecting the storm drain to the sewer system; and a detention tank at the west end of the recreation center grounds. This will capture year-round dry and wet weather runoff for beneficial reuse from the Rose Avenue storm pipe that currently drains straight to Venice Beach. Improved water quality, fewer beach closures, and water conservation are among the Penmar Water Quality Improvement Project’s primary objectives.

Construction hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, with some work possible on Saturdays. The $14-million stormwater project, funded by the voter-approved Proposition O Clean Water Bond, will also include the rehabilitation of three aging sewer reaches in the following Venice streets: Oakwood Avenue, Rialto Court, and Crescent Place.

Construction impacts along Rose Avenue include traffic plans that will close the existing westbound lane to accommodate work on the street along the side of the golf course. However, traffic will be shifted to the existing center turn lane, maintaining at least one lane of traffic in each direction. Frederick Street north of Rose Avenue will also be closed, and activities at the Recreation Center ball field will be relocated by the Department of Recreation and Parks to other facilities.

Construction on this stormwater improvement will continue through late 2012. The completed project will restore the Venice streetscape to its current condition.

For more information about this project, visit www.LAPropO.org or call the Department of Public Works Public Affairs Office at (213) 978-0333. For questions about impacts to the Penmar Recreation Center activities, please call the facility directly at (310) 396-8735
