 Report on Owens Lake Master Planning Collaboration

In March 2010, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power initiated a broad collaborative process to develop a framework to manage the diverse resources of the lake, while continuing to control dust. The Owens Lake Master Planning Committee represented interests in dust control, water savings and efficiency, habitat, cultural resources, public access, education, and recreation, agriculture, and business. The Planning Committee collaborated for nearly three years on the master planning process. As a result of this process, the Planning Committee developed and agreed upon several elements for consideration in future management of Owens Lake. Each element is described in the Report on Owens Lake Master Planning Collaboration.
