Document Description
The Van Norman Complex is an industrial complex owned by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The Van Norman Complex is the termination point for the Los Angeles Aqueducts and contains the Los Angeles Reservoir, the largest in-basin reservoir in the City of Los Angeles. The Van Norman Complex serves many functions, including those relating to water service, power service, and flood control. The Project will remove sediment and vegetation from both within and outside 14 earthen channels, earthen basins, or concrete lined channels in the Van Norman Complex. Routine sediment and vegetation removal is needed to protect water and power infrastructure and property, and reduce flood risk. The Project includes the permanent protection and perpetual management of compensatory habitat. The Project will result in permanent impacts to 6.04 acres of least Bell’s vireo (Vireo bellii pusillus) habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of least Bell’s vireo, which is designated as an endangered species under the California Endangered Species Act. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
