This project will restore the southern portion of the Henrietta storm water runoff basin to increase the total wetland area of the basin to 4 acres. Community members and students will help with the removal of invasive species, debris and trash. The basin will also serve as an outdoor classroom and laboratory to nearby schools.
Henrietta Basin, a storm water and runoff basin, is located adjacent to where Henrietta and Spencer Street meet in the City of Torrance, south Santa Monica Bay.
