During its tour, the CVWD reviewed the history of water in the Valley and shared some possible future insights.

By Charly SHELTON

The Crescenta Valley is shaped by water. In a physical sense by the erosion of the mountains by rain, in a cultural sense by the ever-present reminders and memorials of major floods from the 1930s and, more recently, in the 2010s after the Station Fire. In a more basic sense, the settlement here was established around multiple wells and natural springs that flow from the mountain. Water in Southern California is the most precious resource and one that is dwindling as we face the coming aridification of the West.

Last week, the Crescenta Valley Water District, in conjunction with the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley, led a tour of several of its reservoir sites and wells to talk about the past, present and future of water in the Crescenta Valley. Led by David Gould, director of Engineering and Operations for CVWD, the tour consisted of multiple locations across CVWD’s properties in the area, which are usually behind locked fences.

In looking to the past, guests were taken to Pickens Canyon to see a rock tunnel that was cut by hand 500 feet into the mountainside more than 100 years ago. This tunnel leads to a natural spring deep within the rock that is a source of approximately 30,000 gallons of water each day for the CVWD. The water is retrieved from the spring and held in the on-site reservoir tank for distribution to local homes. One home in particular has grandfathered-in rights to the spring and owns 1/12th of the water rights from it so their water is taken directly from the spring and stored in a privately-owned tank for personal use.

For the present, Gould detailed all of the protections put in place to keep the water flowing in case of a natural disaster. These include rubber joints on pipes that flex with an earthquake and seismic sensors on reservoir tanks for shutting off flow in the event of shaking. And beyond natural disasters, the modern conveniences of computer monitoring from the office or from home make it quick and easy to check on water flow levels, cleanliness standards and more. Back in the 1930s, right after the Glenwood Well was drilled at the site of a lake, the operators needed to live on-site to work the machinery and monitor it around the clock. When the larger facility was built in 1972, the houses of the workers were removed to accommodate the facility and, gradually, the off-site monitoring equipment was installed.

Looking to the future, Gould detailed a new project in the works at Crescenta Valley Park. In the Verdugo Wash, an estimated 500 acre feet of water flows through on low-flow days when there is a drizzle, fog or light rain. The suggested project will see inflatable dams installed inside the wash which, during low-flow days, will expand to catch and divert the flow into an infiltration gallery beneath Crescenta Valley Park’s play area and baseball field. This will help to recapture the water into the groundwater basin rather than sending it out through the drains to the ocean. Then, during storms or other high-flow events that have more water than can be absorbed by the gallery, the dams will be deflated to allow the excess water to drain off and keep the flood risk low. Above the infiltration gallery, on the surface of the project area once it is completed, Gould suggests a native garden in the empty spaces around the play area, as well as turning the lower part of Dunsmore Avenue into a green street to allow the rain to seep through the pavement and be recaptured. This project has been in the works for the last 10 years, and the District is currently seeking the proper funding sources for this $4 million project.

This hatch protects the entrance to the tunnel and is only opened by CVWD personnel to check on the spring and perform maintenance.

“However,” Gould said, “what we’re trying to find are partners. The park is owned by LA County Parks and Rec. The streets are owned by the City of Glendale. So we’re trying to work with them and partner them together. And the City of Los Angeles says [it has] rights to all of this water. So right now those are three things that are going on within the park that we’re trying to battle. It’s going a little slower than I’d like it to go, but we’re trying to get it going anyway. This would be a perfect area.”

A recording of this CVWD/HSCV has been made and will soon be available on the CVWD website for any interested residents to view.

Cal Welcomes Ashley Li And Sawyer Thomsen To Squad

BERKELEY – California volleyball has announced the addition of two top prospects to its 2023 incoming class in Ashley Li (Diamond Bar, Calif./Walnut High School) and Sawyer Thomsen (Lawrence, Kan./Lawrence Free State High School).

"We are very excited for the arrival of our 2023 recruiting class," said head coach Sam Crosson. "Each of them has played for high-level coaches and club teams prior to their arrival at Cal, and each possesses tremendous amounts of potential and the ability to compete for playing time right away."

Ashley Li A 6-foot-3 outside hitter, Li competed for La Salle High School from her freshman to junior years and for Walnut High School as a senior. Most recently, she led her team to a 2022 Varsity Walnut Summer League championship, following a standout junior season in which she was named to the All-California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Southern Section Division 2 Team, the All-Del Rey League First Team and the All-Crescenta Valley Falcon Tournament Team.

Li also competes for the T-Street IE 17-Asics club team, where she was a team captain for the 2021-22 season and earned May's Player of the Month award. The team finished second at the Red Rock Rave Junior National Qualifiers.

"Ashley's height, athleticism, volleyball IQ and skillset have continued to improve year after year," said Crosson. "She is physical at the net, has a heavy arm when attacking and has a true passion for the game and desire for continual improvement. Her personality, motivation and character are great additions to our program."

Li comes from a strong volleyball background, with both her father Hua Li and mother Cynthia Yao having played for the Shanghai men's and women's volleyball team, respectively, as well as the Chinese national beach volleyball team (father) and FuDan University women's volleyball team (mother).

A four-year honor roll student, Li plans to major in media studies and business at Cal.

Sawyer Thomsen A 6-foot-2 middle and right side blocker, Thomsen was named Prep Dig's Top Middle in Kansas for the 2021-22 season in addition to making the Prep Volleyball Top 150 Recruits list for three straight years (2020-22) and the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Phenom Watch List each year from 2019-21. In addition to competing for Lawrence Free State High School, Thomsen also played for the Mavs KC club team, earning her way to the Kansas Volleyball Association's Class 6A All-State First Team in 2022, First Team All-Sunflower League in three straight years (2020-22) and the AVCA Best and Brightest list.

As a senior, Johnson averaged 3.2 kills per set on a .360 hitting percentage. She also posted 1.2 blocks per set and 0.7 service aces per set.

"Sawyer plays with a competitive fire and can both score and defend from various positions along the net," Crosson said. "Her personality and spirit are infectious to her teammates.

USC Verdugo Hills Hospital (USC-VHH) received a grant from the California Dept. of Health Care Services and CA Bridge to support a behavioral health pilot project in its Emergency Department (ED).

This means that when someone comes into the USC-VHH ED with a drug emergency there is a cohesive plan to not only take care of the patient but to follow-up with support that will hopefully protect the patient from returning to the hospital due to another drug issue.

“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention the number of drug overdoses is continuing to rise. Over 70% of 70,000 deaths in 2019 involved opioids,” said Dr. Tarina Kang, chief medical officer with USC-VHH.

According to the CDC, in 2020 there were 91,799 drug overdose deaths in the U.S. Opioids were involved in 68,630 of those overdose deaths equaling 74.8% of all drug overdose deaths.

In 2018, the organization CA Bridge started to expand access to medication for addiction through Emergency Departments using them as critical access points, Kang said. The organization provided statewide grants for hospitals to help with intervention in EDs.

According to CA Bridge, the organization provides training, technical assistance and coaching so that hospitals may take on a critical role in solving the overdose crisis.

Kisti Keratisomphon has been with USC-VHH since January in the position of substance use navigator, behavioral counselor through this program.

Care Coordinator Keratisomphon is trained at USC-VHH to respond to patients who come into the ED with drug issues. She will work with the patient, and at times family members, to improve treatment including conducting initial interviews with patients and help create a pathway for their future.

“She has led efforts [at USC-VHH] and is shifting the mind [perception] and culture in treatment,” Kang said.

Many times patients who are suffering from an overdose come into the ED and are seen by doctors responding to the immediate health issue. They are then either released when they are healthy enough to leave or are placed on a psychiatric hold if there is evidence they are a danger to themselves. With the new program, and coordinator, there will be more of a follow-up that includes treatment including medications for addiction like buprenorphine that is used in opioid addiction.

“This journey supports USC-VHH expanding its behavioral health,” Kang said. “People who come to the ED with substance use disorder need the same empathy and understanding as [people with other medical issues].”

Keratisomphon’s job is to act as a liaison among addiction clinics, other medical personnel and the patient.

“Coming to the ED is step one. Step two is creating a longevity toward sobriety,” she said.
