The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and the City of Burbank will host a community event to inform the public about the Department’s River Supply Conduit 7 (RSC7) project, which is located in part, in the City of Burbank. LADWP and Burbank leaders will share information about the important LAWDP water system infrastructure project taking place behind the large fence that obscures the project from street view. Those who attend will get to see a 63-foot pit where work has already begun, and the tunnel boring machine (TBM), a 200-ton marvel of construction engineering, that is a critical asset to the project.
