Tom LaBonge Headworks Water Complex is a 110-million-gallon capacity reservoir and is the largest, man-made, underground water reservoir in the Western United States. Headworks East has been fully operational since 2014 and Headworks West, and the remainder of the project, are expected to be complete by the end of 2024. Once completed, both structures will be covered with soil and native vegetation, including a garden with walking trails that will serve as open recreational space for Angelenos and visitors alike. The 43-acre complex will also boast a state-of-the-art Water Lab. In 2015, Councilmember LaBonge participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Headworks Water Complex project that replaced Silver Lake and Ivanhoe reservoirs.
