HOLLYWOOD : Reservoir Closed to Recreational Activities

June 04, 1993

Hollywood Reservoir will be closed to recreational activities such as walking, jogging and bicycling until 8 a.m. on June 12 for disinfection treatment, it was announced Thursday.

Chlorine will be put into the 1.3-billion-gallon reservoir to eliminate bacterial growth that occurs every summer, Department of Water and Power officials said. The usual chlorine levels used to disinfect water will be boosted with portable chlorination equipment that pumps concentrated chlorine solution into the reservoir.

The diesel electric equipment, which is expected to be used for a continuous 80-hour period, will produce noise that may be heard by residents, DWP officials said.
