  • City of South El Monte
  • Green Streets
The Merced Avenue project aims to demonstrate how street design can combat rising temperatures, increase pedestrian/bicyclist safety, and improve local water quality. A neighborhood-scale project like Merced Avenue is intended to provide a real-world model of watershed-based design that integrates many ongoing efforts in the region to address flood management, water quality, and habitat restoration.

Oro Vista Local Area Urban Flow Management Project

  • 08/21/2020
  • City of Los Angeles
  • Green Streets
The Oro Vista Local Area Urban Flow Management Project is located at Oro Vista Avenue from Hillrose Street to Wyngate Street including a portion of Foothill Boulevard. It is designed to capture and infiltrate approximately 22.4 acrefeet of runoff before it reaches the Haines Canyon Channel. This Project is an example of a cost-effective, regional approach for improving water quality and increasing local supplies by combining stormwater infiltration features (dry wells), flood mitigation features (catch basins connected to the storm drain system) and a variety of greening elements such as infiltration planters with native plants and vegetation and pervious concrete sidewalks.
