How was the location of the outfall determined?

A very thorough evaluation took place prior to selecting the Marina Park location, including a study to evaluate the use of existing outfalls that were previously abandoned. Ultimately Marina Park was the only location that avoided subsurface obstructions and fault lines, provided enough construction workspace, and would increase the overall protection for the pipelines offshore. Additional information on that evaluation is discussed in the Ventura Water Supply Projects Environmental Impact Report
