Los Angeles Reservoir

The earthquake affected structures at the Los Angeles Reservoir.

The protective asphalt lining on the upstream face of the embankment dam cracked. (See Detail)

The bridge from the top of the dam to the intake tower was damaged. Its central section was dislodged from its supports (the piers) and thrown sideways. (See Detail)

The 3 metre diameter pipe, carrying water from the reservoir downstream of the dam, burst causing flooding downstream. This picture shows the repaired pipe. (See Detail)
