RIBBON CUTTING FOR OAK PARK, STEVENS PARK, AND WESTSIDE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER STORM WATER INFILTRATION PROJECTS SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29 AT 11:00 AM AT OAK PARK

Press and Public Invited to Attend Ceremony

A ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of Storm Water Infiltration Projects at Oak Park, Stevens Park, and the Westside Neighborhood Center is scheduled for Wednesday, January 29, 2014, at 11:00am.

Completed in December 2013, the project included the removal of approximately 100,000 square feet of asphalt and the installation of permeable pavers in the Westside Neighborhood Center parking lot, the Stevens Park parking lot, and the Oak Park main parking lot, tennis court parking lot, stage area, and picnic area.

The permeable pavers allow storm water and urban runoff to infiltrate into the ground, rather than washing into storm drains, creeks, and the ocean. The design demonstrates a retrofit that complies with the Clean Water Act and the City's Storm Water Management Program by detaining and treating the volume of water generated by a one inch storm event.

Funding for these projects has been provided by a grant agreement with the State Water Resources Control Board, and by the City of Santa Barbara Creeks Division through Measure B.

The ceremony will take place at the Oak Park Main Parking Lot on West Junipero Street, between West Alamar Avenue and Calle Real.
