Address Plummer / Hayvenhurst Los Angeles, CA 91343, USA

Los Angeles is one of the cities with the most canals in the United States. While the Venice canals are the most popular, the flood control canals in the downtown area are also very well known.

Used in many movies and TV shows, the Los Angeles flood control canals were born as a result of the Flood Control Act of 1941. Concrete facilities allow water to flow to the ocean in the event of flooding. Bull Creek, a tributary of the Los Angeles River, originates at Oat Mountain. It flows through the city via one of these control channels. It enters the Sepulveda Dam Recreation Area after leaving its concrete bed to resume a more natural flow.
