Action: Integrate best practices for working with persons experiencing homelessness utilizing the river corridor.
Many unsheltered residents live in homeless encampments alongside the LA River.
Encampments can impede operations and maintenance efforts and often pose challenges to both environmental and public health, particularly water quality. The provision of permanent sanitation and hygiene facilities, coupled with a centralized set of guidelines for the management and clearing of encampments based on compassionate practices, when necessary, will ensure that the river corridor is a space where all people feel safe, have access to basic needs such as restrooms, and are treated with dignity.
