Urban Water Diffusion Diversion Units Placed Online
4/18/2014  The Water Quality Department has placed the city's urban water diversion units back online for the summer season. The city maintains 22 urban water diversion units primarily along the coastline. These diversion units serve to redirect over irrigation and other non-stormwater, collected in the storm drain, to the sewer system. These structures function to divert pollutants such as brake dust, oil, fertilizers from landscaping, pesticides, and other debris to the sewer system. Over the course of a year, an average of about 8 tons of debris and pollutants are pulled out of the diversion structures and hauled away for disposal.
