City of Pasadena Announces Arroyo Seco Water Reuse Project Public Scoping Meeting

PASADENA, Calif.— A public scoping meeting will be held 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, December 14, 2023 at La Casita Del Arroyo, 177 S. Arroyo Blvd, Pasadena to share information regarding the Arroyo Seco Water Reuse Project.

The Cities of Pasadena and South Pasadena have partnered to implement a set of design strategies that will result in improving the water quality in the Arroyo Seco Channel. The project includes two locations: Lower Arroyo Seco southwest of the San Rafael Avenue overpass of the Arroyo Seco Channel at the southern border of the City of Pasadena; and San Pascual Site: Lower Arroyo Seco southeast of the San Pascual Avenue overpass of the Arroyo Seco Channel between the channel and Stoney Drive in the Cities of South Pasadena and Los Angeles.

The meeting discussion will focus on the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requirement for evaluating the possible environmental impacts this project may have regarding topics such as traffic, noise, pollution, biological resources, air emissions, etc.

The environmental consultant will prepare a 15-20 minute presentation on the CEQA process and its requirements and then we will have outreach information on display from previous community meetings.

The Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration environmental document has been released for public review and the City of Pasadena Department of Public Works will be accepting written comments through 5 p.m. on January 15, 2024.
