Issues & Opportunities in Urban River Restoration and Revitalization
« All Publications

The Los Angeles River is a 51-mile urban waterway running through one of the most densely populated areas of California.

Growing interest in reimagining the River has spawned a myriad of intensely scrutinized planning efforts. Whichever path the River follows, significant challenges exist. These challenges focus around water resource management such as flood risk, water rights, groundwater adjudication, and water quality liabilities. The complete picture will also center on equity, land use, environmental justice, governance, gentrification and displacement, and of course, funding. These challenges, however difficult, represent opportunities for multi-agency collaboratives, public-private partnerships, and meaningful public participation. Come see concrete examples of success leading to a River with clean water, ample open space, and a healthy population.
