Years of California drought and other ever-present threats to infrastructure resiliency have spurred Los Angeles County Water Projects.
California was the first state in the nation to recognize the human right to safe, clean, affordable and accessible water. Los Angeles County covers more than 4,000 square miles, and in our desert climate, providing reliable, high-quality water can be a challenge. Los Angeles County Water Projects help maximize stormwater runoff, modernize dams and keep safe drinking water flowing.
The $20 million Los Cerritos Channel project in south Long Beach will collect water from streets, parking lots and other surfaces in Long Beach and Signal Hill, funneling the liquid into a cistern where it will be treated to be reused for drinking and other household purposes.
Los Angeles County Department of Public Works resumed work on an essential infrastructure project at Devil’s Gate Reservoir in the City of Pasadena. The Devil’s Gate Reservoir Restoration Project is a four-year effort to increase vital flood protection for communities downstream of Devil’s Gate Dam.
The River Supply Conduit 7 (RSC7) project in Burbank replacing pipes that were installed in the 1940s and are approaching the end of their typical lifespan is expected to be completed by April 2022.
