Project: Los Angeles River Stormwater Capture Project

Description: The project would expand upon TNC’s completed feasibility study and provide an engineering plan to implement a pilot project of stormwater capture and habitat enhancement at one of two possible project sites: the north side street end of Silverlake Boulevard or California State Parks’ Bowtie Parcel. The Conservancy granted Proposition 50 funds to TNC in February 2014 toward a “Water Supply and Habitat Resiliency for a Future Los Angeles River: Site-Specific Natural Enhancement Opportunities Informed by River Flow and Watershed-Wide Action Study.” The current project seeks to undertake a pilot project on the river to demonstrate how stormwater management might accelerate restoration of native habitat and natural flow in the river.
