The Big Tujunga Wash Fall 2017 Newsletter for LACDPW prepared by Chambers Group, Inc.

 

We are pleased with the opportunity to be a part of the LACDPW team for 2017 for the implementation of the Master Mitigation Plan (MMP) Programs at the Big Tujunga Wash Mitigation Area (Mitigation Area) near the community of Sunland, Los Angeles County.

The Mitigation Area is owned and managed by LACDPW to offset impacts to habitats and vegetation communities at other LACDPW-owned facilities. Chambers Group prepared the original MMP for the Mitigation Bank in 1999 and implemented these services beginning in August 2000 through 2006, and are very excited to return and be part of the project team again for the remainder of 2017.
