Reservoir construction Snapshot #9

Earlier this week we had the chance to see construction from inside the fence! Thanks to a representative at Water Operations at Los Angeles Department of Water and Power we received a wonderful and informative tour of the construction site at the Silver Lake Reservoir!

Silver Lake Forward is committed to the Silver Lake Reservoir continuing as a beautiful urban body of water. We look forward to hearing from DWP and the City of Los Angeles about a sustainable water source, and what a reasonable timeline is to get water back into the lake, given our drought conditions. We encourage the use of recycled/ reclaimed water. We need a community planning process and feasibility study to determine future uses for the Reservoir that support access, beauty, and conservation. We trust that this planning can happen in parallel with construction. We don't want to slow down the process of getting water back in the lake, and we also want to make sure we use the time the lake will be drained as wisely as possible.

Check out some of the images from our excursion below:
