Pier Storm Drain Improvements

 
The Santa Monica Pier water quality has been subject to high bacteria levels, which has led to beach closures.  Studies have shown that the Pier Storm Drain is a major cause of elevated bacterial concentrations.   In response, the City initiated the Pier Storm Drain Improvement project.

  This project performed major repairs to the size of the existing Pier Storm drain diversion to the sewer for flows that exceed the capacity of the Santa Monica Urban Runoff Recycling Facility, and replace the deficient storm drain under the Pier to reduce runoff flows onto the beach.
