Headwaters Area

Located at the confluence of Bell Creek and Arroyo Calabasas, Canoga Park presents a significant opportunity to reimagine the Los Angeles River as a shared cultural, ecological, and infrastructural resource for adjacent communities in relation to the goals of the forthcoming 2020 LA River Master Plan. The area faces hydraulic challenges related to flood risk reduction, as the channel is only estimated to have flood conveyance capacity for a 2% (50 year) event, significant issues with water quality, and a critical lack of parks and open space. Canoga Park is identified as a Major Project Zone in the Master Plan and was commissioned to explore large scale feasibility for project development across the study area.
