Humboldt Greenway Project Breaks Ground October 11


Please join City of Los Angeles Councilmember Ed P. Reyes and officials from the Department of Public Works in celebrating the start of construction of the Humboldt River Greenway Project and the 10th Anniversary of the City Council Ad Hoc Committee on the Los Angeles River on Thursday, October 11, 2012.

Here are the specifics regarding the Humboldt River Greenway Project groundbreaking event:

Date: Thursday, October 11, 2012
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: Humboldt River Greenway Project site, 1800 Humboldt St., Los Angeles, CA 90031
The Humboldt River Greenway Project, located in the Lincoln Heights community of Los Angeles, involves daylighting an existing storm drain system and constructing a stormwater greenway with a “stream” ecosystem through a corridor on Humboldt Street, with a pedestrian path connecting Avenue 18 and Avenue 19. This project will enhance Los Angeles River water quality by removing pollutants (oil, bacteria, trash) from dry-weather urban runoff, provide natural habitat and community recreational opportunities, and promote the idea that urban streams are a valuable resource to be enjoyed. Construction on this project will last approximately a year with the project concluding in late 2013.
Funding for this project was provided by LA Sanitation. The project was undertaken in connection with the settlement of the Hyperion Treatment Plant enforcement action, California Regional Water Quality Control Board, Los Angeles Region vs. City of Los Angeles.
We invite you to share this event flyer with your friends, colleagues and family and look forward to seeing you there!
