Mayor Villaraigosa Clears the Waters

Kudos to Mayor Villaraigosa for his support of the LA River and his beautiful statement on 07/08 about the place of the LA River in LA’s past, present, and future…

“There was a time when the Los Angeles River ran freely along a flooded plain, and the lands surrounding it were lush and fertile. It was the primary water source for the Los Angeles basin, the reason our city was able to grow and thrive. Now, as you all know, the river is barricaded by concrete, stifled by pollution, and surrounded by skyscrapers, highways, and traffic. It doesn’t have to be this way. Today marks a historic step in our efforts to return the LA River to its former glory. It was my honor to be with Lisa Jackson, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, to announce that the EPA now views the river as a national resource.”
