In 2004, Los Angeles voters overwhelmingly passed Proposition O, which authorized the City of Los Angeles to issue a series of general obligation bonds for up to $500 million for projects to protect public health by cleaning up pollutants in LA’s regional waterways and ocean to meet federal Clean Water Act regulations.
Proposition O’s main objective is to fund projects that fall into one or more of the following categories:
- River, Lakes, Beaches, Bays and Ocean Water Quality Protection
- Water Conservation, Drinking Water and Source Protection
- Flood Water Reduction, River and Neighborhood Parks that Prevent Polluted Runoff and Improve Water Quality
- Stormwater Capture, Clean-Up and Re-Use
An Administrative Oversight Committee (AOC) and Citizens Oversight Advisory Committee administer the projects funded by Proposition O.
Please visit LAPropO for more information about Proposition O and its related projects.
