Whitnall Gardens

The Whitnall Gardens is a project concept developed by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP). The project site is located immediately southeast of the Whitnall Highway Power Transmission Line Right-of-Way Stormwater Capture Project. The project concept is a small-scale pilot project to serve as a demonstration to other potential projects in the San Fernando Valley. The objectives of the Whitnall Gardens Stormwater Capture Project include the reduction of local flooding, groundwater replenishment, and enhanced open space opportunities. Currently, the Project’s site is used as a temporary parking lot, which will last until 2021, to support local businesses affected by LADWP’s trunkline construction. Once construction is complete, Power System will replace the transmission lines above the project site, which is estimated to last until 2026.
