Arroyo Seco Confluence | KCET
Arroyo Seco Confluence
The Arroyo Seco Confluence links the Los Angeles River to the 22-mile Arroyo Seco stream. This point is within walking distance to a Gold Line station and several MTA bus lines. Currently, there is limited access to the Confluence, characterized by high vertical walls and wire fences. This point is a key spot for flood management and water quality improvements.
The ARBOR Study proposes that this tributary be restored with riparian habitat. The stream itself will have its banks and bed softened for approximately half a mile upstream. At the confluence of the Arroyo Seco and the River a backwater riparian wetland will be established along with the restructuring of the banks to support vegetation. The Arroyo
Seco Foundation has championed this vision, encouraging environmental features along with recreational uses.
