Contemporary and Historical Hydrologic Analysis of the Ballona Creek Watershed

The current study investigates the partitioning of native and non-native water sources for the Ballona Creek Watershed—a highly urbanized system within the Los Angeles basin. The goal is to evaluate the impact of imported water on spatial and temporal hydrologic cycling and to develop conceptual models of the system as it has evolved from pre-development through the contemporary period.

This is the final report to the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission.
