CURRENT SITE CONDITIONS
The Oxford Retention Basin is a multi-use enhancement project by Los Angeles County Department of Public Works in collaboration with Los Angeles County Flood Control District and Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbor. This project is designed to enhance flood protection, reduce runoff pollution and significantly improve the quality of plant and wildlife habitat within the facility, as well as its aesthetic appeal. The renovations and improvements to the site include but are not limited to the removal of non-native trees and plants that will be replaced with native and drought-tolerant plant palette. The project will also provide new recreational and safety amenities, including a walking path, observation areas, wildlife-friendly lighting, and new and improved fencing. The project is in the final design phase and planned to start construction in the spring of 2014. To learn more about the project, please feel free to visit the project website by clicking here.
