Virtual Tour of Dominguez Channel

Headworks of Dominguez
The Dominguez Channel begins just south of Imperial Highway in the City of Carson
At 120th street
After a short stretch under 120th Street in the City of Hawthorne, the channel reappears near the Crenshaw Park and Ride
At Rosecrans
In its uppermost reaches the channel has a simple rectangular cross section.
Cross section transition
Near Redondo Beach Boulevard, the Dominguez Channel cross section changes slightly to include a low flow trapezoidal channel.
At Western
Seen here near Western Avenue in the City of Torrance, the Dominguez Channel carries small flows year round from permitted discharges and urban runoff
Estuary transition
At the intersection of Vermont Avenue and Artesia Boulevard near the Artesia Park and Ride, the cross section of the channel transitions from rectangular to trapezoidal. From this point to its opening at the Los Angeles Harbor, the channel experiences tidal influence.
