Reconnecting the Lincoln Heights community of Los Angeles with the Los Angeles River
On November 2, 2004, the voters of Los Angeles overwhelmingly passed Proposition O, which authorized the City of Los Angeles to issue a series of general obligation bonds for up to $500 million for projects that protect public health by cleaning up pollution, including bacteria and trash, in the City's watercourses, beaches and the ocean, in order to meet Federal Clean Water Act requirements.
In addition, the measure will fund improvements to protect water quality, provide flood protection, and increase water conservation, habitat protection, and open space. The bonds allow the City to purchase property and/or improve municipal properties for projects that:
- Protect rivers, lakes, beaches, and the ocean;
- Conserve and protect drinking water and other waters sources;
- Reduce flooding and use neighborhood parks to decrease polluted runoff;
- Capture, clean up, and reuse stormwater.
