If the relocation involves an increase to the flows tributary to the catch basin due to an increase in tributary area (as in curb relocations over 10 feet) requiring the catch basin to be enlarged, submit a Hydrology Report signed and stamped by a civil engineer registered in California. The report must analyze the additional flows generated and provide calculations for sizing the new catch basin. Changing the dimensions, construction Standard, local depression, or connector pipe size will require hydraulic calculations, however, relocations made “in kind” (identical catch basin and local depression, etc.) do not require calculations.
