In 2008, we told you about the potential of tunneling under San Pedro to replace two wastewater lines. Back then there were 14 possible locations on the table for the Clearwater Program. That field has been narrowed down to four — two of which will impact Palisades residents directly.
Royal Palms Beach and Angels Gate Park are being considered for construction shafts, where equipment, materials, and workers would enter the tunnel and excavated soil would be removed. Construction will take five to eight years to complete depending on which site is chosen. There would be 50 to 100 truck trips per day to remove soil from the site.
If you would like to learn more about the Clearwater Program, please attend a meeting hosted by the Palisades Residents Association on Tuesday, June 14 at 6:00 pm at the Corner Store. (Please note this meeting has been rescheduled from the previously announced June 7 date.)
