Historic Echo Park Lake is one of the City of Los Angeles' crown jewels of parks. The City's Proposition O Program provided the funding for a major rehabilitation of the lake, and Black & Veatch was selected by the City to conduct the design of the rehabilitation project. One of the major objectives of the project was to improve water quality in the lake to meet the numerical water quality objectives established by the California Regional Water Quality Board. The objective of this paper is to describe the stormwater and lake water quality modeling that was conducted to determine which of the proposed BMP improvements would best meet the water quality objectives within the project budget and expectations of the community stakeholders.
