Whitnall Highway Powerline Easement

Location:  Whitnall Highway from Vineland Avenue to Cahuenga Boulevard, North Hollywood, CA

Located in the San Fernando Valley along Whitnall Highway from Vineland to Cahuenga, the Whitnall Highway Power Line Easement project captures stormwater to infiltrate and recharge the San Fernando groundwater basin. The project is anticipated to capture and recharge 110 acre-feet of stormwater annually, but it will provide multiple additional benefit as well. Through smart stormwater management mimicking natural processes, the project is expected to reduce local flooding, improve downstream surface water and groundwater quality, and reduce the region’ reliance on imported water. This LADWP project is in partnership with LA County DPW, City of LA DPW, the cities of Glendale and Burbank, Upper Los Angeles River Area Watermaster, TreePeople, and Sun Valley Watershed Stakeholders Group.
