Owens Lake mitigation (0379)

Owens Lake mitigation (0379)
LADWP efforts to mitigate the effects of having been draining the inflow for Owens Lake for 100 years. Some portions of the lake will be reflooded, other portions they're only trying to control the flow of toxic dust.

There's an excellent article in Audubon magazine about the restoration: www.audubonmagazine.org/articles/birds/california-lake-becomes-stopover-spot-again

John Linton has particularly liked this photo

I've yet to see any pictures from that era, but would be interesting to compare. Of course this isn't the only place we've done this (and looks like we're going to be doing even more of it).
