LA County Public Works: Sediment Hauling & Flood Control Maintenance Activities (Verdugo Debris Basin)
For Immediate Release
LA County Public Works: Sediment Hauling & Flood Control Maintenance Activities
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works (County) will be clearing rocks, sediment, and debris (collectively called “debris”) from the Verdugo Debris Basin. As part of routine maintenance the basin is being cleared to ensure it has increased capacity for sediment that may get carried down from neighboring canyons in future storms to provide increased protection to local communities.
County crews will work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays as needed, during the storm season.
TRUCK HAUL ROUTES
Truck routes are illustrated on the attached map. Safety is Public Works’ highest priority. Truck hauling operations are monitored by County staff to ensure that drivers navigate their routes safely and observe all traffic laws. If you see a truck that is not observing traffic laws, please contact Public Works’ 24-hour Dispatch Center at (800) 675-HELP (4357).
To expedite their operations, County crews require unobstructed access to County facilities. Please avoid parking vehicles or storing materials on streets near the Basins on La Crescenta Avenue during hauling operations. Parking restrictions (if necessary) will be posted 48 hours in advance.
LA County appreciates your patience and understanding during storm season. If you have questions about maintenance activities or would like to report a concern, contact the project manager below during business hours or call Public Works Dispatch at (800) 675-HELP (4357).
