Silver Lake Reservoir Dam Repairs Slated to Wrap Up April 30
Council District 13 Field Representative Mary Rodriguez reports that LADWP is performing crack sealing on the slope face of the dam at the Silver Lake Reservoir, the dam crest/pedestrian walkway, dam shoulders and portions of the access road. Work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and the project is scheduled to end by April 30. During this time, the subcontractor will utilize the entrance near the Meadow once in the morning and in the afternoon and will be staging and setting up equipment on the dam. Access around the dam area will be impacted and the pedestrian walkway will be closed during the duration of this work.
Although the Silver Lake Reservoir, which was completed in 1907, is no longer used as a source for drinking water, the LADWP is responsible for maintain the safety and structural integrity of its earthen dam. The State of California regulates dams to prevent failure, safeguard life and protect property.
