One hundred years after William Mulholland reportedly said “There it
is, take it,” Los Angeles officials on Tuesday marked the centennial
of the completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, an engineering feat
that made possible the Southern California we know today.
The aqueduct, bringing Eastern Sierra water more than 230 miles to
Los Angeles from the Owens Valley, opened on Nov. 5, 1913 — a
seminal moment in L.A. history.
The City of Los Angeles has developed the Solid Waste
Integrated Resources Plan (SWIRP) a long-range plan for the City’s

policies, programs and facilities that will be needed to reach the
City’s goal of 90 percent landfill diversion by 2025.
SWIRP, which is a Master Plan with no site specific
development proposed at this time, identifies the potential future
development of 10 to 15 facilities that would address the City’s

Two community meetings were held October 2013 to discuss various
proposed alternatives in managing the sediment at the Pacoima
Reservoir. "The amount that needs to be removed now equals seven
times the volume of the Rose Bowl, but by the time the project is
completed in about 10 years, even more sediment will have accrued.
The cost will range from 85 to 180 million dollars, depending on
