PROJECT DESCRIPTION South Bay cities are required by the Regional Water Quality Control Board of Los Angeles to prevent storm water with bacteria from being discharged to the Santa Monica Bay. Therefore, the City of Torrance is improving the Amie, Henrietta, and Entradero Detention Basins in West Torrance to provide natural treatment systems, improve groundwater recharge and provide the community more opportunities for walking trails. The City has been awarded a $3.3 million grant by the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission and a $300,000 grant from Bureau of Reclamation. The construction is scheduled for summer of 2014.
