Since the project was approved in 2012, the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County has been working on the tunnel design.   That has also entailed conducting soil investigations along the tunnel alignment so that they have a good geological profile.   The current schedule is:


  • 2017 – Finalize Engineering Design, Obtain Permits & Rights-of-Way
  • 2018 – Begin Construction at JWPCP (Carson)
  • 2020-2024 – Tunneling
  • 2023-2025 – Work at Royal Palms Beach

There is a public workshop scheduled for September 19 @ 6:30 pm at the San Pedro DoubleTree Hotel.
