The Baldwin Hills reservoir failure


Walter Hoye, Los Angeles DWP: Let me tell you about my involvement at the time of the Baldwin Hills Reservoir failure. I was studying for my first promotional exam at the University of Southern California library. I was an entry level engineer at the Department of Water and Power. Well, here I am 22 years later, I am the Engineer of Design in charge of dam safety. I was concerned then and I am really concerned now. I am responsible for all of our dams in the city and all of the dams we have along the 300 miles of aqueduct that bring water from the Sierras to 3 million people in Los Angeles. I thank Dr. Leonards very much for giving me a chance to address you today.
