Newport Beach considers major improvements for flood-prone Balboa Island

Anyone who has been on Balboa Island during a hard rain knows the streets can flood.

The city of Newport Beach is considering replacing the island’s 1930s-era drainage system with several automated below-ground pumps. That would save on labor and costs associated with manually opening the tide gates at the end of streets and sending out portable pumps and slicker-clad city workers to dump excess storm water into the bay.
