SPL-408-PN-2019-0011 Santa Ana River Channel and the San Timoteo Creek Channel Brine Line

Los Angeles District
Published June 28, 2019

The City of Beaumont is proposing to install a 12 inch diameter HDPE brine line via attaching it to the deck of the existing E Street Bridge over Santa Ana River Channel, to continue underground along SBCFCD’s north levee access road for approximately 22 feet.  Approximately 650 linear feet of the brine line will be placed within an 18 inch diameter steel casing underneath the bridge deck.  Under San Timoteo Creek below the San Timeoteo Canyon Bidge, a 12 inch diameter HDPE brine line will cross the creek approximately 17.47 feet below channel bottom, to be installed via horizontal directional drilling.  The purpose of the project is for the City of Beaumont (City) to comply with requirements of the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board (SARWQCB) to expand the treatment capacity and improve treatment methods at the City WWTP.  The concentrated brine waste to be generated from such operations would need to be properly disposed of to the nearest connection point of the Inland Empire Brine Line (IEBL, formerly the Santa Ana River Interceptor or SARI line), which is located on the right bank of the Santa Ana River, upstream of E Street Bridge.
