Construction to Begin on N. Quarantina Street
Later this month the Creeks Division will begin construction of a storm water infiltration demonstration project in the 700 and 800 blocks of North Quarantina Street.
 
The existing asphalt road and concrete sidewalks will be removed and replaced with permeable pavers, which allow storm water and urban runoff to soak into the ground below the pavers rather than running offsite.
 
This prevents pollution from washing into storm drains, which flow into our creeks and ocean untreated.
 
Funding for this project has been provided primarily through a grant agreement with the State Water Resources Control Board, and by hotel visitors through Measure B.
 
To learn more about these and other permeable paver projects, visitwww.sbcreeks.com.
Take Our Outreach Survey!
