CHINATOWN WATERSHED: CASE STUDY

PAH TEMPE PIPES: This area has been heavily disturbed by the construction of 2 large pipes. The pipes were originally located in the river, but removed due to the corrosive quality of the sulfur in the water. The banks are stabilized with both natural and man-made structures. The natural stabilization primarily comes from Tamarisks, which pose their own threat to the health of the river at this location.
