BACKGROUND
The City of Santa Clara has approximately 200 miles of storm drain pipes and 8,440 storm drain appurtenances, which include catch basins, manholes, retention basins, lift stations, pump stations, and outfalls. The City operates and maintains all 22 storm lift stations and pump stations that discharge into creeks and rivers. Most of the pump stations are located in the northern half of the City and pump storm water over and through levees into Guadalupe River, San Tomas Aquino Creek, or Calabazas Creek.

The Laurelwood Storm Drain Pump Station (Station) was built in 1986 and is located in an industrial area of the City at the corner of Laurelwood Road and Victor St. The Station collects drainage from approximately 308 acres and conveys stormwater into the Guadalupe River. There have been no major improvements to the Station since it was constructed. The Station currently experiences operational issues that require attention in order for it to properly function and provide reliable service.
