TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to grant an easement deed and enter into a Sewer Relocation Agreement with the County Sanitation District of Los Angeles County No. 3, for the improvement of a portion of the sanitary sewer facilities at Colorado Street, between Nieto and Orlena Avenues, as a part of the Colorado Lagoon Open Channel Phase 2A project. (District 3)

DISCUSSION
The County Sanitation District of Los Angeles County No. 3 (LACSD) owns, operates, and maintains an approximately 5,300-foot long public sanitary sewer in the City of Long Beach (City) that is known as the Marina Relief Trunk Sewer, Section 1B (Existing Sewer), which LACSD completed and placed into service in 1969. A portion of the Existing Sewer alignment is located in Colorado Street, between Orlena and Nieto Avenues, in what was public right of way at the time of construction of the Existing Sewer. In 2012, the City completed a land swap with the State of California that resulted in the vacation of portions of Colorado Street between Orlena and Nieto Avenues. However, the City did not reserve an easement in favor of LACSD for the Existing Sewer.

The City prepared plans and specifications for construction of the Colorado Lagoon Open Channel Phase 2A (Project). The Project includes construction of an open channel under Colorado Street, between Orlena and Nieto Avenues, to replace an existing underground culvert between the Colorado Lagoon and Marine Stadium. Construction of the Project would impair LACSD’s ability to operate and maintain the Existing Sewer unless a portion of the Existing Sewer is relocated. To avoid any impact of the Project on the Existing Sewer, the City proposes to construct an approximately 545-foot long inverted sewer siphon under the proposed open-channel, construct an approximately 525-feet sewer siphon airline, and remove the portion of the Existing Sewer that intersects the Project (together, the Relocated Sewer).
