People have to get their water from
somewhere! What is the water level,
is it down in the reservoir? Do
you ever run into any Poison Oak?
Tujunga Creek flows eventually into the Los Angeles River which contributes very little to the LA water supply (most of the water supply comes via the aqueducts from the high sierra). This dam actually was built in 1931 as a flood control and water conservation project. I have no idea about the water level though. Poison Oak - oh yes, all the time.
Looks like a lot of water would be coming
in from the Central Valley, via the Sacramento
and San Joaquin Rivers. I had fogotten that
LA is the second largest city, in terms of
population. Say ... have you ever been up
to Huntington Lake? Beautiful area!
No, I have never been up there. I saw many pictures though and it must be beautiful.
Nice!! I attached it to my 'Dams and reservoirs' album!
I remember in the mid 70's when the whole area washed out with mass flooding
Unfortunately, the Los Angeles River--into which the Big Tujunga flows--has no storage areas of note. All water flowing into the drainage flows directly out to sea. The contrast with the settling basin storage capacity of the San Gabriel River drainage is stark.
