Los Angeles' Forgotten River
"This is Los Angeles' other river its grander, cleaner and more useful river. It meanders in the public relations shadow of the region's signature waterway, the Los Angeles River, a paved darling of conservationists and environmentalists... The San Gabriel is the river that Los Angeles tamed, plundered and forgot. In terms of stature and overall health it's a victim of its own quiet utility as one of the hardest-working urban rivers anywhere, a portrait of the West's brute harnessing of precious H2O."
