The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is set to advertise for proposals next month to construct an $11.5 million pump station to reroute water that currently is diverted into the Los Angeles Aqueduct back into the Lower Owens River. The project is part of a Memorandum of Understanding between the department and Los Angeles County, the Sierra Club and other parties to restore a waterfowl habitat area, and the LADWP faces a fine of as much as $5,000 a day if it does not fulfill the agreement.
