DWP Agrees to Work with Experts to Protect Wildlife

Updated: Apr 15, 2021

In response to questions from members of the Silver Lake Wildlife Sanctuary at a recent

Silver Lake Together community meeting, LADWP has agreed to work with wildlife experts

and the Sanctuary to be sure nesting herons and other species are not harmed during the

construction of the reservoirs’ aeration and recirculation systems. LADWP also agreed to

coordinate traffic control with LAPD.

LADWP presented the project plan for the systems that will maintain water quality in the

reservoirs, and DWP representative Susan Avila confirmed work on the project will begin

this spring and continue through mid-2022. LADWP maintains the open water bodies,

including control of algae growth and reduction potential odors from anaerobic (lack of

oxygen) conditions.
