Action Alert -- L.A. River Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study
- URGENT:THE MOST IMPORTANT RIVER LETTER YOU'LL EVER WRITEAction Alert:Next Monday morning, the top brass from the Los Angeles District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will meet in Washington, D.C. with the Corps' top planning officials to decide the fate of the L.A. River. After nearly a decade of study, the Los Angeles District of the Corps has come up with far-reaching proposals to restore significant stretches of the River's ecology.Alternative 20, the FoLAR-endorsed "Piggyback Alternative" plan, would take out concrete walls, remove concrete in the riverbed, and restore natural hydrologic functions and habitat connections in the Arroyo Seco, the Verdugo Wash, and the main stem of the River from the Piggyback Yard through the Glendale Narrows.I want to personally ask you to immediately e-mail Steve Stockton, the Corps' Director of Civil Works, and urge Corps headquarters to choose Alternative 20, the Piggyback Alternative, for the L.A. River Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study.This can't wait. Please do it now. Your children will thank you.Lewis MacAdamsFounder and PresidentFriends of the Los Angeles RiverPlease submit written comments to:Steven L.
