Water Quality Improvement Project Underway for LA River and Arroyo Seco
The $13 million project to improve water quality in the Los Angeles River/Arroyo Seco is progressing. Design firm, Stantec, in collaboration with the Los Angeles Department of Public Works Bureau of Engineering and LA Sanitation & Environment, formulated the plans for the Low Flow Diversion Project.
Infrastructure is being created to divert dry-weather flows from the storm drains and into existing sanitary sewers and the Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant.
“The city of Los Angeles wants to use Arroyo Seco and the L.A. River for more recreational purposes,” said Venu Kolli, Stantec senior principal and project manager. “It’s critical that the water quality is improved. Diverting this low-flow water is an excellent way to enhance the waterways and give the city additional resources through water reclamation. We are excited to see the community-enhancement project start construction.”
The Clarke Contracting Corp. is spearheading construction and the project is expected to be completed by November 2022.
