Document Description
The primary purpose of the proposed project and alternatives considered in this study is to restore approximately 11 miles of the Los Angeles River from approximately Griffith Park to downtown Los Angeles. This reach is identified as the "Area with Restoration Benefits and Opportunities for Restoration" reach, or ARBOR reach. Restoration would occur by reestablishing riparian strand, freshwater marsh, and aquatic habitat communities and reconnecting the River to major tributary confluences and its historic floodplain, while maintaining existing levels of flood risk management. Opportunities for future regional connections to the habitat zones of the Santa Monica, San Gabriel, and Verdugo Mountains would also be created. A secondary purpose is to provide recreational opportunities consistent with the restored ecosystem within this 11 mile reach of the river.
