- Lakewood Stormwater and Runoff Capture Project at Bolivar Park
- The City of Lakewood is one of several southeast Los Angeles cities located within the Los Cerritos Channel Watershed, which is a largely built-out, urbanized watershed of approximately 17,711 acres in the Los Cerritos and Alamitos Bay Watershed Management Area. As a permittee under the NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) Municipal Permit, the City must demonstrate that pollutant discharges from the watershed comply with applicable water quality goals, including Total Maximum Daily Loads, of the NPDES Permit. The proposed project located at Mayfair Park would result in the design and construction of a facility to divert water from one of two major flood control channels (Del Amo Channel) to fulfill its dual purpose of promoting water filtration and irrigation. This project is being implemented by the City of Lakewood to incrementally meet its TMDL compliance and augmenting its local water supplies by using non-potable runoff water for irrigation.
