Los Angeles River Demonstration Projects were authorized in WRDA 2007, Section 4018 to provide information to develop a study for environmental ecosystem restoration, flood control, recreation and other aspects of Los Angeles River revitalization that is consistent with the goals of the Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan and advisory to the Los Angeles River Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study.

Civil Works Program

The Mojave River Reservoir Dam project is located 100 miles east of Los Angeles in San Bernardino County, California.

Civil Works Program

Matilija Dam is located on Matilija Creek, a tributary to the Ventura River, near the town of Ojai, in Ventura County. The study addressed hydrology, hydraulics, dam safety and removal issues, water allocation, flood control and flood plain management issues, sediment removal, transport and beach nourishment, and environmental restoration.

Civil Works Program

The Los Angeles County DMMP (Dredge Material Management Plan), now the Los Angeles County DMMF (Dredge Material Management Framework), includes the LA River Estuary (Long Beach), Port of Long Beach, Port of Los Angeles, and Marina del Rey, which are located within the coastal waters of Los Angeles County. The project creates a regional strategy with regulatory coordination for removing the majority of sediments, managing the disposal of contaminated sediments from multiple projects and identifying multi-user disposal site for receipt of these sediments.

Civil Works Program

The Seven Oaks Dam Water Conservation Study will investigate opportunities for implementing a water conservation plan at this dam located within the San Bernardino National Forest, San Bernardino County, Calif., approximately one mile upstream of the mouth of the Santa Ana Canyon at the confluence of the Santa Ana River and Government Canyon.

Civil Works Program

The project consists of operations and maintenance for five dams and associated channels and debris basins within the Los Angeles County Drainage Area (LACDA).

Civil Works Program

The Harbor South Bay Water Recycling Project would develop up to 70,000 acre feet of alternative water resources yearly, providing reliable and drought proof water for the Los Angeles area and reduce effluent discharge into the Santa Monica Bay and the National Marine Estuary. The area encompasses the cities of Los Angeles, Compton, Carson, Gardena, Inglewood, Hawthorne, Torrance, Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills and Rancho Verdes Estates.

Civil Works Program

The City Creek, Highland, project consists of protecting, in-place, the existing 78 inch pressure water line by placing additional concrete around the pipe and constructing grade stabilizers (upstream and downstream of the pipe) to control flood velocities in an area located 60 miles east of Los Angeles in the city of Highland, Calif.

Civil Works Program

The Special Investigations - Tribal Partnership Program supports one of the six USACE Tribal Policy Principles (self-reliance). The Corps is authorized to conduct small (<$100,000) reconnaissance studies of various water resources and related issues, such as flood damage reduction, environmental restoration and protection, watershed planning, preservation of cultural and natural resources studies, and other appropriate projects.
