Welcome to OC Watershed's Project & Grants Section. We will continue to update this section to keep you informed of activities and progress within the Laguna Coastal Streams Watershed.
Heisler Park ASBS Protection and Preservation Project Information Heisler Park underwent a major renovation last winter. The blufftops along the rim of the park were stabilized, the drainage and irrigation systems were overhauled, both restroom facilities were rebuilt and new stairs were constructed to Rockpile Beach. The Fisherman's Cove diversion has been designed and is scheduled to start construction as early as September 2009.
This project was designed to showcase the latest in environmentally friendly design, particularly with regard to drainage. All storm and "nuisance" water draining from the park in the renovated areas are routed away from the blufftops and through various types of natural filters before entering the storm drain. Nuisance flows entering the storm drain for the Picnic Beach area are diverted to the sewer rather than to the beach. Fisherman's Cove will receive a new diversion unit as well.
Construction started on September 4, 2007 and the closed areas were reopened on July 2, 2008. The construction was divided between two projects - Phase I and Phase II. Click on the following link for more information on the Heisler Park ASBS Protection & Preservation Project.
