Project Description

The Loma Verde Avenue Trunk Line Improvement Project was the first of the thirteen proposed Capital Improvement Projects funded by the Storm Water Management Fee ballot measure that was approved by Palo Alto voters in April 2017.

The storm drain pipes on Loma Verde Avenue, between Louis Road and the former Sterling Canal easement just past Maddux Drive, lacked the capacity required to convey runoff from a 10-year storm event. Upsizing these pipes to achieve a 10-year level of service was recommended on the 2015 Storm Drain Master Plan. This will allow the City to upsize the storm drain system upstream of Loma Verde Avenue in the future, thus reducing the flooding risk of an area approximately 77 acres. Approximately 1,700 feet of storm drain line on Loma Verde Avenue was upsized from an existing 36-inch diameter to a proposed 48-inch diameter pipe.
