Valley Generating Station
Projects The Valley Generating Station is a power generating facility owned and operated by the City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The planned stormwater capture project at this site will be designed to reduce localized flooding, recharge the groundwater basin, and improve downstream water quality in the San Fernando Valley. The project will capture stormwater runoff and direct it through a series of recharge basins, swales, and overflow culverts to strategic points on-site. This project will increase groundwater recharge necessary to sustain the long-term reliability and utility of the groundwater basin and decrease the region’s dependence on imported water supplies.

Design of the Valley Generating Station Project is expected to begin in 2016, and construction is slated to begin in 2017. The construction cost for the project is preliminarily estimated at $1.2 million. Project partners and supporters include the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, the City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works, The Upper Los Angeles River Area Watermaster, and TreePeople, Inc.
