Monteith Park and View Park Green Alley Stormwater Improvements Project

Ladera Park


Water Quality

• Storm runoff carries urban trash and debris into local rivers, streams, and beaches.
• Underground Infiltration System
• Low Impact Development


• There is a need for safe neighborhood parks and for the preservation and enhancement of existing recreational facilities.


• The public is increasingly aware of water resources challenges, but awareness of innovative, environmentally sustainable solutions still needs to be raised.

The Monteith Park and View Park Green Alley Stormwater Improvements Project is located in the unincorporated area of View Park, the Project will capture and infiltrate urban runoff and stormwater from 228 acres of primarily residential and commercial land from neighboring areas.

The use of this water will help offset potential drought conditions as well as improve downstream waterbodies such as Ballona Creek and the Santa Monica Bay.
