Baldwin Avenue Rain Garden Rehabilitation Project

HC

Updated: 08/04/2017

The Baldwin Avenue rain garden is located on the east side of Baldwin Avenue, just north of Farragut Drive. This rain garden is designed to intercept initial storm water and urban runoff from Baldwin Avenue between Braddock Drive and Farragut Drive. The rain garden will filter the runoff as the water percolates through the soil. The rain garden can reduce or eliminate pollutants such as metals, bacteria, and toxins from entering Ballona Creek and can contribute to the improvement of water quality. 

View construction plans here and here.

For more information about rain gardens and storm water projects, please call the Public Works Environmental Programs and Operations Division at (310) 253-6415.
