Abstract
Many freeways in California have storm water pumping plants located near a bridge structure to dewater depressed sections of the freeway. The Ravenswood Slough Pumping Plant is located near the Dumbarton Bridge, which links southerm Alameda County on the east to San Mateo County on the west (an 8,600 foot long structure, which carries over 50,000 vehicles daily). This pumping plant is the largest State-maintained pumping facility and drains all storm water into the San Francisco Bay for the City of Menlo Park.
