Project: Lower Los Angeles River Integrated Design Project

Description: The project is part of an effort to create a unique identity and multi-use benefits for the 51 mile length of the Los Angeles River, while maintaining flood control capacity. The goal is to develop an integrated design and technical analysis along the entire 51-mile length of the LA River and create a range of river interventions and multi-benefit capital improvement projects. The activities and deliverables related to the Lower section of the LA River represent approximately 16% of the larger project budget for Phase One. Work performed in this first phase will become the foundation for future project phases and related Scopes. The Lower LA River reaches include the Southeast Cities reach, Southern cities reach and the Estuary Reach within the City of Long Beach and adjacent area. The project includes six main tasks and deliverables including: 1. Basis of Design Testing; 2. Data Acquisition and Analysis; 3. Water Resources Research and Benefits Estimation; 4. Initial Beta Tests and Econometrics; 5. Public Engagement and 6. Project Management.
