The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, on behalf of the Los Angeles Flood Control District is preparing an environmental impact report (EIR) to assess the environmental impacts associated with removal of sediment from Devil’s Gate Reservoir to restore flood control capacity and establish a reservoir configuration more suitable for routine maintenance activities including sediment management.
Public Works invites the public to provide input on the project during the 45-day scoping period from September 28 to November 11. Interested parties are encouraged to email, write, and/or attend any of the planned community meetings to submit written or verbal comments. Input can include concerns or questions about the proposed project, significant issues that should be addressed in the EIR, and/or information or data that could be helpful in review of the project. A Notice of Preparation and Initial Study for the project are available to provide background and information on the proposed project.
