The Clearwater Project uses modern technology to construct a new tunnel from the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant in Carson to the existing ocean outfalls at Royal Palms Beach. Multimedia resources are provided to help you learn about the tunneling technology and the accompanying monitoring systems that will be used to ensure safe and controlled construction.
