Elysian Reservoir Water Quality Improvement Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR

Document Description
To help ensure the quality, reliability, and stability of the City of Los Angeles drinking water supply, including compliance with updated US EPA water quality standards, LADWP proposes to replace the uncovered Elysian Reservoir. The new buried reservoir would be constructed in essentially the same location as the existing reservoir, although with a slightly reduced footprint. The buried reservoir would provide an equal amount of potable water storage (55 million gallons [MG]) as is available in the existing reservoir. A new 54-inch diameter underground inlet line connecting the buried reservoir to the existing Riverside Trunk Line would also be constructed. The area atop the buried reservoir would be developed for recreation uses.
