Perched atop a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Trinidad’s only link to the Pacific Ocean is the Trinidad Harbor located at Trinidad Head, owned and operated by the Trinidad Rancheria. Both the harbor and its seaside eatery, the Seascape Restaurant, have been used intensely by local fishermen, tourists, recreationists, and beach-goers for years so that new public facilities were needed. It became apparent early in the design process that the sewage treatment system serving the harbor and restaurant had failed beyond repair. Adding to the urgency for new facilities, California’s State Water Resources Control Board designated the harbor area as an Area of Special Biological Significance (ASBS).
Pacific Affiliates was awarded the task of replacing the sewage treatment system and designing a public restroom facility while meeting the demands of an ASBS, the California Coastal Commission, County and City agencies, the citizens of Trinidad and the ancestors of the Native Americans who long ago called Trinidad home. What resulted was a large public restroom facility centrally located between the beaches and harbor facilities, a custom sewage treatment and disposal system, additional employee parking and a retaining wall with a rock facade to clean up the appearance of a vegetated slope.
