Contractor has completed the leveling slab for the bottom of the detention tank and will soon erect the scaffolding for the tank deck. The restroom is well under its way in completing sheeting of the roof.

Over the next two years, the City of Los Angeles will build the first phase of the Temescal Canyon Park Stormwater Best Management Practices Project. This two-year, $8 million project is a key element in the City’s efforts to remove bacteria and other pollutants from urban runoff and keep them from reaching Will Rogers State Beach and the adjacent coastal waters.

This project, along with other approved Proposition O projects, will assist the City in complying with the Santa Monica Bay Beaches Dry Weather Bacteria Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) requirement, making our beaches and bay waters safer and healthier while meeting Environmental Protection Agency and federal Clean Water Act regulations.
