pass upstream through the dam in order to find spawning areas in the upper river. Few fish headed downstream survive the dam.
Mayor Eric Garcetti aggressive support for 20 is the latest move in a two century long effort to transform the enigmatic Los Angeles River into whatever is the current reform cause. Today the reformers press for of the river to its natural state. In earlier years reformers supported precisely the changes that today river advocates want to demolish. The new reformers want to ride kayaks through the brush, encourage wildlife to seek sanctuary in the stream, and to make the river once again a place of recreation, beauty and life. But the river that had those qualities was also a deadly and costly river, repeatedly flooding the pueblo and then the city until the public rallied behind the need to transform it into a flood control channel. That decision did not come easily or inexpensively. The earliest Anglo settlers in Los Angeles reminded newcomers of the awful floods in the 1820s, followed by more destruction in the 1860s and 1880s. Early settlers recalled that the natural channel was not the one to Long Beach.
icane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast in 2005, Brouwer said. The fish tower challenges designers as well, because enough passage windows must be created to allow fish to enter the facility, with elevations of the reservoir fluctuating as much as 100 feet as Air Max Womens Red water is stored and released to help control the flow of the Green River. Corps officials continue to study a permanent fix for the leak which possibly could involve a cement cutoff wall. That project would take several years and cost in the hundreds of millions of dollars, said Col. Anthony Wright, commander of the Seattle district of the Army Corps. The federal government built the rock and earth fill Hanson dam in 1961 to control major flooding in the Green River Valley, including the cities of Auburn, Kent, Renton and Tukwila.

areas adjacent to the river. A devastating flood in 1938 and an outcry from residents south of Los Angeles caused the Army Corps of Engineers to pour the concrete siding and bottom that today reformers condemn. As early as the 1880s other Angelenos, like today mayor, promoted alternative uses for the river. Some saw the river as a solution to the problem of sewage disposal. Sewage simply ended up in an open field at the end of the line. Why not dump it into the river, where it would flow to the Pacific at Long Beach?One intriguing proposal think of it as the Alternative 20 of the 1880s called for making the river navigable as it flushed sew.
