Third Ballona Creek Watershed Meeting Scheduled for Tuesday, September 21st

The City of Los Angeles Stormwater Program, on behalf of the Ballona Creek watershed, invites you to participate in the third workshop for the development of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDL) Implementation Plans for the Ballona Creek watershed on Tuesday, September 21st.

The two previous workshops discussed the identification and prioritization of pollutant hotspots and opportunities for water quality improvement projects in the Ballona Creek watershed. With your great input, this resulted in two Implementation Plans for the Ballona Creek Bacteria and Metals TMDLs. The third workshop will be dedicated to the development of the third Implementation Plan for the Ballona Estuary Toxics TMDL.

The workshop topics will include:

•Multi-pollutant and sustainable, green approach to water quality improvement and TMDL compliance

• Proposed distributed and regional projects for implementation in the Ballona Creek watershed

• Results of Toxicity Identification Evaluation special study

• Proposed strategy to address the specific requirements of the Ballona Estuary Toxics TMDL

In addition, Stormwater Program staff will present preliminary concepts of several stormwater projects identified in the Implementation Plans.

We look forward to meeting with you at this workshop!

When: September 21, 2010 from 10:00am to 11:30 am

Where: Hyperion Treatment Plant, Conference Room 116
12000 Vista Del Mar, Playa Del Rey, CA, 90293
