Action: Include climate change research in the planning process for new projects along the river.
Current infrastructure in and along the LA River was designed based on historic climate data. However, a changing climate is likely to increase the frequency of extreme precipitation events that result in flows that may exceed the channel’s current capacity. New projects along the LA River must consider the long-term impacts of climate change and the need to incorporate resilient infrastructure to handle these extreme events.
