Santa Monica debris basin is considered the jewel of the south coast flood protection facilities.  Following the devastating debris flows that followed the Thomas Fire in Santa Barbra County, Bengal was hired to design improvements for the Basin to protect the City of Carpinteria.  The improvements included the design of two bridges, modifications to four inlet towers and storm drains along with a new low-flow diversion. These improvements will allow the basin to perform at a much higher rate and provide easier and safer access for maintenance.
