The Arroyo Seco Watershed Restoration Feasibility Study was developed in 2001 and 2002 as an important planning document for the restoration of the grand canyon that runs from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Los Angeles River through Pasadena, South Pasadena and Northeast Los Angeles. The goal of the study was to develop a comprehensive, long-term plan to restore and enhance the Arroyo Seco, a major tributary of the Los Angeles River.

Major elements of the study considered flood and stream management, habitat restoration, water resources and recreational opportunities. The watershed study, a partnership of North East Trees and the Arroyo Seco Foundation, was funded by the California Coastal Conservancy and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy with assistance from the River, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program of the National Parks Service. Fourteen governmental agencies with management responsibilities in the Arroyo Seco, including the US Forest Service, the three cities the Arroyo runs through and Los Angeles County Department of Public Works participated in the study and reviewed key documents.

The Arroyo Seco Watershed Restoration Feasibility is a key document to learn more about the Arroyo Seco watershed and charts the way to future restoration projects. Check the links below to find out more.
