Altadena Heritage Events

Thursday, July 20, 7-9 pm at the Community Center – 730 E. Altadena Drive

Golden Poppy Awards

Please join Altadena Heritage, Neighbors Building a Better Altadena, and the Altadena Library for a panel discussion on the proposed crosstown pipeline — moderated by Larry Wilson of the Star News. This project, initiated by the Los Angeles Department of Public Works, would transfer water from behind Devils Gate Dam across Altadena to Eaton Canyon for the purpose of infiltration into the Raymond Basin. The pipeline would travel from Pasadena to Pasadena, across Altadena, if the Woodbury Road/New York Drive route is chosen.

Because this project is linked to the removal of sediment from behind Devil’s Gate Dam in Hahamongna Watershed Park, we will also get an update on what the recent judgement in the Arroyo Seco Foundation and Audoban Society’s lawsuit might mean to both projects.

The purpose of the program is informational. Residents are concerned about the impacts of pipleline construction, and the effects it would have on local water supply. Statements regarding impacts, as well as the amount of water to be transferred, have varied widely. Here is your opportunity to ask questions of the parties involved, and to engage in an issue important to our community.

Representatives of LACDPW, City of Pasadena, and Arroyo Seco Foundation will each give short presentations, followed by moderated Q&A.

Free and open to the public, no reservation required. Contact altadenaheritage@gmail.com for more information.
