Reservoir construction Snapshot #10

Last week we saw great improvement from previous weeks. The pipeline seems to almost be complete. Metal fencing covers half of the visible pipes (this fencing is used to create the concrete encasement) while the other half is already inside the concrete. Construction trucks also seem to be working diligently to get their tasks completed! Take a look here:

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.
