Abstract : This survey aims to locate, describe and evaluate the historic resources lying (1) within and adjacent to the Whittier Narrows Flood Control Basin and (2) along the banks of the Rio Hondo channel from Whittier Narrows Dam to its junction with the Los Angeles River and along the banks of that river to the Pacific Ocean at Long Beach. The purpose of this survey is fourfold: - (1) to locate and identify historic resources within and adjacent to the above specified areas; (2) to evaluate the effects of the proposed project upon those resources; (3) to propose ways of mitigating any harmful effects on those resources, (4) to nominate qualified historic resources or sites for potential inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places, and for potential inclusion in the California State Historic Landmarks program.
