LOS ANGELES--The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District and Orange County Water District will jointly host a public scoping meeting for a multi-faceted project to restore environmental resources and conserve water within Prado Basin and downstream of Prado Dam to be held at the Inland Empire Utilities Agency Events Center Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  The IEUA Events Center is located at 6075 Kimball Ave., Chino, Calif.
