Penmar Park Project Celebration

Penmar_ParkJoin Councilmember Bill Rosendahl, Councilmember of the 11th District, and officials from the Departments of Public Works and Recreation and Parks to celebrate the completion of the Penmar Water Quality Improvement Project, a Proposition O Clean Water Bond-funded water quality improvement project.

The Penmar Water Quality Improvement Project reduces pollutant levels in stormwater runoff from the existing Rose Avenue storm drain by diverting dry and wet weather runoff into a massive 2.75 million gallon underground storage tank, which is located directly under a portion of the Penmar Recreation Center Park playing fields. Pumps will then move the polluted stormwater runoff into the sanitary sewer system where it will receive treatment at LA Sanitation’s Hyperion Wastewater Treatment Plant before being discharged into Santa Monica Bay. 

Here are the specifics regarding the grand opening event:

Date: Monday, April 15, 2013
