Save the Date! Community Reservoir meeting on June 30th!

Save the Date! Community Reservoir meeting on June 30th!

The Silver Lake Neighborhood Council and Councilmembers Mitch O'Farrell and David Ryu will be holding a meeting on the plans to refill the Reservoir -June 30th 7:00 PM at Micheltorena School.

We look forward to learning about the timeline for refilling the Reservoir - the source of much neighborhood anxiety over the last couple of months.

The DWP released a fact sheet that outlines answers to some common questions - but the timeline won't be discussed until the meeting.

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 our Council members 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 lakewill be drained as wisely as possible.

We look forward to seeing you on June 30th, the start of the planning process for this incredible public asset. We'll send a reminder the week before the meeting happens! The meeting was previously at Ivanhoe, but now will be taking place at Micheltorena St. School - 1511 Micheltorena St, Los Angeles, California 90026.
