BAA Connects with LA DWP Stone Canyon Reservoir GeoTech Project about Daily Project Stopping Times

Earlier today, the Bel-Air Association connected with the LA DWP representatives leading the Lower Stone Canyon Reservoir GeoTech Project. Several neighbors in the area had expressed concern about the loud equipment running well past the stated 5pm finishing time...sometimes almost 7pm.

The supervisor of the project immediately alerted the teams today that all loud noise making equipment is to cease at 5pm each day. They are appreciative we brought it to their attention and really want to be sensitive/understanding to the community.

If you missed our past posts about the project, here are some of the important highlights from DWP.

"We are drilling borings at the different locations at the embankment and toe of the dam to collect samples as part of the Stone Canyon Dam seismic stability evaluation. Most of the borings will be inside of the Stone Canyon Dam complex. There will be three borings located at the DWP landscape area outside of entrance gate at 1680 Stone Canyon Rd. The work schedule is from 7am-5pm with full time DWP employee supervision.

We will use different drill rigs to collect soil samples. One type of drill rig, similar to a pile driving machine, will be used at one boring location at the landscape area. This rig will generate pounding noise and vibration. At this time, we anticipate to use this rig next Thursday or Friday (Aug 28 or 29)."
