LA Water: Past, Present, and Future – A Look at Our Underground Streams with Jessica Hall, Josh Link, and Jane Tsong

May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Miracle Mile Democratic Club is hosting a panel discussion on the history of Los
Angeles water and underground streams. As we wrap up this winter of atmospheric rivers
where curbs flooded and streets turned into rivers, we ponder with experts about the
ground below us, which is comprised of existing streams, sandy washes, historic wetlands, ponds, storm drains, concrete channels and hidden creeks that have either been buried or
drained. There are questions to explore such as where is the swamp land in the namesake
La Cienega? What happens to a creek in the hills when it crosses Hollywood Blvd? What
would Los Angeles look like if we ‘daylighted’ our creeks. And, please, can someone tell us
do we pronounce it Ballona or Ba-yo-na Creek?

Join us as our experts, Jessica Hall, Josh Link and Jane Tsong weave the mysterious
narrative that is our Los Angeles water and hidden streams.
