About Us


Watershed Management Division was established in August 2000 to address the flood risk management, water quality, water conservation, open space, and recreational needs of the Los Angeles County Flood Control District. Rather than focus on single-objective solutions for these Flood Control District priorities, the Division uses an integrated, multipurpose approach that is consistent with watershed management principles. These principles are carried out through a framework of collaboration and partnerships, combined with sound science and local knowledge, as a foundation for well-planned actions. Outcomes are monitored so that multi-purpose projects may be adapted over time to achieve improved results.
