Document Description
The proposed Program would capture stormwater flows to recharge the San Fernando Groundwater Basin in order to increase local water supply, alleviate localized flooding in the area, and improve water quality. Underground infiltration galleries would be constructed within open space portions of nine parks located along State Route (SR) 170 between the Pacoima and Valley Village neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley. Additional improvements to park and recreational amenities would also be implemented as part of the Program. The nine parks include David M. Gonzales Recreation Center (10943 Herrick Avenue, Pacoima, CA), Fernangeles Park (8851 Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Sun Valley, CA), Strathern Park North (8045 Whitsett Avenue, North Hollywood, CA), Whitsett Fields Park North (7100 Whitsett Avenue, North Hollywood, CA), Valley Plaza Park North and Valley Plaza Park South (12240 Archwood Street, North Hollywood, CA), Alexandria Park (north of SR 170 and west of North Laurel Canyon Boulevard), North Hollywood Park (11430 Chandler Boulevard, North Hollywood, CA), and Valley Village Park (5000 Westpark Drive, North Hollywood, CA).
