A massive stormwater project at Penmar Park in Venice is on target to meet a completion date of early 2013, according to the Los Angeles Department of Public Works.
A spokesperson for the department says crews are in the final stages and that the area is starting to look like a park once again.
“The soil has been back filled but the fence is being maintained to allow for the top soil to settle and the new vegetation to take,” said spokesperson Michelle Vargas. “As that transpires, we will work on the finishing touches of the projects with more electrical and mechanical work.
Vargas said that crews are still working to make storm drain connections along Rose Avenue at Frederick. The department plans to clear the street by the end of October or early November.

Earlier this year, Councilmember Bill Rosendahl talked to civil engineers and project managers working on the $14 million Prop O project (see VIDEO). The project has created 30 jobs and when complete, will clean the stormwater runoff that flows to Venice Beach.
