Storm Drainage Enhancements along Salado Creek

Project Lead: City of Patterson

Potential Project Partners:
No partners identified at this time

Short Project Description:
Installation of reinforced concrete pipelines under the California Northern Railroad wooden bridge to improve storm drainage along Salado Creek.

Long Project Description:
The inlet structure for the 96” Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) just downstream of the California Northern Railroad (CNRR) wooden bridge has a limited capacity and includes a debris collection grate at the pipe inlet that is too small. These conditions contribute to frequent flooding within and upstream of this area and prevent the available capacity in the 96” CIPP from being fully utilized. The inlet structure needs to be enlarged at this location to reduce flooding and to provide discharge capacity.

This project is located downstream of the State Highway 33 and starts where the CNRR bridge crosses Salado Creek. The project will install two new 72 inch diameter reinforced concrete pipelines (RCP) under the bridge. Each pipe will be 60 feet in length. The existing trash rack at the entrance to the 96 inch pipeline will also be replaced with a new static (non-powered) unit. A new precast headwall will be installed on the upstream side of the twin 72 inch pipelines. The canal between the outlet of the new pipeline and the existing 96 inch pipeline will be lined with concrete.
