    The Los Angeles River is nearly 50 miles long weaving through the entire city winding its way to the ocean. Unfortunately many residents of Los Angeles don't even realize the city has a river let alone that it plays a vital role in the urban communities it passes through. Thanks to partnerships between the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Los Angeles Conservation Corps and Friends of the Los Angeles River, the river is bringing new opportunities to a new generation of young adults, recreation opportunities to the citizens and a new era of revitalization and wildlife conservation.

  • Los Angeles battles drought by releasing millions of shade balls into reservoirs

    LOS ANGELES — Millions of plastic shade balls were poured into the Los Angeles Reservoir on Monday to help protect water quality and prevent evaporation. Hollow and weighted down with water, the balls will remain on the water’s surface and protect the water from dust, rain, birds and reduce algae growth. The balls will also block the water surface from the sun, preventing bromide and chlorine in the water from reacting and forming bromate, a known carcinogen. Less than $35 million was used to produce the shade balls, an amount much smaller than the estimated $300 million cost of covering the 175-acre facility. "This is a blend of how engineering really meets common sense. We saved a lot of money, we did all the right things," said Los Angeles Department of Water and Power General Manag...

"This is a blend of how engineering really meets common sense. We saved a lot of money, we did all the right things," said Los Angeles Department of Water and Power General Manager Marcie Edwards at a press conference. Los Angeles is the first city in the United States to use shade balls. Ninety-six million shade balls have been poured into several reservoirs in LA. According to ABC 7 News, the balls will prevent an estimated 300 million gallons of water from evaporating into the air each year. The balls can last 10 years inside the reservoirs before they are recycled and replaced. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
