According to the city of Los Angeles, is still on schedule to finish in the fall of 2013.
The $8 million project is an effort to stop stormwater from running into and to reduce beach pollution.
As of March 28, construction crews were still excavating and trucks were moving soil from the project site, making way for a detention tank. According to the Temescal Canyon Park Stormwater Best Management Practices Project website, the excavating will continue through April.
The site also says traffic may be stopped from time-to-time on Temescal Canyon Road to allow trucks to enter and exit the contraction site. Parking will also be restricted in the immediate area, so residents are asked to pay attention to posted signs.
When construction is finished, water from an existing storm drain under Temescal Canyon Road will be diverted to new facilities in and near . After being held at a pretreatment facility on the site, the water will be sent through the sewer system to a treatment plant.
Funding for this project is through the Proposition O Clean Water Bond.
