Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation Dominguez Channel Enhanced Watershed Management Plan

Los Angeles, CA

Cordoba Corporation provided technical expertise in support of developing an Enhanced Watershed Management Plan (EWMP) for the Dominguez Channel watershed, which includes parts of the City of Los Angeles and County of Los Angeles Flood Control District. Cordoba was responsible for developing a funding strategy that would facilitate the construction of the infrastructure projects identified in the Dominguez Channel EWMP. Our work included developing a comprehensive report detailing available state and federal grant and low cost financing options; and identifying specific project elements and planning steps needed to access the available grant or low cost financing. As a part of the report, Cordoba also identified project features that would maximize the success of a grant or loan application. Enhanced Watershed Management Plans are a provision of the newly adopted Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit adopted by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board.
