Historic Cascades Open For LA Aqueduct Centennial


The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is opening The Cascades in Sylmar to the public in celebration of the Los Angeles Aqueduct’s Centennial. This rare opportunity will allow members of the public to see up close an important piece of water infrastructure that marks the southern terminus of the Los Angeles Aqueduct.

The Cascades will be open from November 6 – 8 between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and on November 9 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The Cascades are located at 17001 Foothill Blvd, Sylmar, CA  91342.

On November 5, 2013, LADWP hosted a reenactment of the significant moment in Los Angeles history when water first arrived in Los Angeles in 1913, 100 years ago, via the newly-completed Los Angeles Aqueduct. For a century, the Los Angeles Aqueduct has delivered water to LA from the Eastern Sierras. It remains to be one of the most important engineering marvels of the early 20th century.
