Stormwater Discharge Improvements Planned for Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach

Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Don Knabe announced plans to contract for construction of flood control improvements in the Cities of Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach. Improvements will include construction of a device to divert low water flows in the existing storm drain along Herondo Street between Monterey Boulevard and Valley Drive, a sediment separation device, a reinforced concrete sump with pumps, discharge pipes, and supporting structures.

This project is part of the County’s extensive stormwater program and will provide improved water pollution control by diverting non-storm runoff to a sewage treatment plant.

The County Department of Public Works will open bids May 11 on a contract to perform the work. Public Works expects the work to start in July and take 45 working days to complete the project, ending in October. Once work begins, traffic may be mildly disrupted.
