The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has determined that plans for the giant Playa Vista development do not violate the Endangered Species Act. In January, several environmental groups sued the corps, charging that the developer's plans to build a 1,000-acre residential and commercial complex in the Ballona Wetlands area would harm 19 species of birds and animals.

The river workhorse begins here in the northern Idaho farm belt, slicing a canyon through the rolling grasslands of the most productive wheat fields in the nation. Here, the Snake River takes 722,000 tons a year of wheat and barley on its back and carries it down through the confluence with the Columbia River and on to the sea--465 miles of what was once the wildest river system in the West.

The cranes and chain saws have removed the last shreds of vegetation from Medea Creek in Agoura Hills, and just a few water birds swim in the unshaded water. Now, officials say, this creek and nearly 100 channels like it in Los Angeles County will flow as originally intended, guiding rainwater to the sea and away from the flood plains where homes are located.

By Friday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers should grant permission to clear Los Angeles County's clogged flood control channels, the agency's top regional official told the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday. But in a bizarre twist that played itself out in a nearly two-hour debate moments later, political differences among the supervisors may prevent the work from starting immediately, increasing the possibility that El Nino-triggered winter storms could cause the channels to overflow.

Thirty feet below a smelly, trash-strewn path between a shopping center and a condominium complex, a wild forest of reeds and brush bursts forth from a barely moving stretch of Medea Creek in Agoura Hills. Defiantly green against the surrounding concrete, these cattails, arundo and willows provide an odd and incongruous patch of beauty behind a locked and rusting chain-link fence.

Nearly 100 flood control channels--from Santa Clarita to Compton to the San Gabriel Valley--could overflow during predicted El Nino storms because of procrastination by federal and state agencies, a top Los Angeles County official warned Tuesday. James Noyes, chief deputy director of the county Department of Public Works, said in a briefing to the Board of Supervisors that the county has sought permission to clear vegetation from the flood channels for two years.
