Abstract:

The San Diego County water Authority was organized to provide an imported supply of water to the San Diego region. The sole source of the water to the Authority is Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. A recent study concluded that these aqueducts are severely threatened by erosion caused during floods in the San Luis Rey River. This paper summarizes the preliminary design alternatives prepared for protection of the aqueduct crossings.
