DUARTE, CA, JUNE 24, 2017-The City of Duarte will begin to transport sediment from the Greenbank Debris Basin to the Manning Pit facility in City of Irwindale starting Monday, June 26, 2017. The City’s contractor, Sully-Miller will begin transporting the sediment from the site starting at 7:00 a.m., and anticipates the work to take three days to complete. The Greenbank Debris Basin is an instrumental component of the City’s flood control system. Because of last year’s Fish Fire, followed by heavy rains, the basin has captured normal than usual amounts of sediment, gravel boulders, and vegetative debris that washed out of the canyons. It is imperative that sediment be removed to provide future storage capacity.
Moving the sediment material out of the debris basin requires excavation equipment and dump trucks that will use local streets to transport the material. The City’s contractor will make every effort to minimize the impacts from the debris basin clean-out and hauling work. The route that the City Contractor will use to transport the sediment will be from Greenbank Avenue to Royal Oaks Drive to Las Lomas Road onto Huntington Drive. From there, they will go to the Irwindale facility.
