Easement acquisition is currently in progress for the properties located along Canal No. 1 from the Naval Base to Espy Avenue. At this time, approximately 60% of the necessary Permanent Drainage Easements have been obtained. The Long Beach Water Management District will not be in a position to begin any of the canal improvements for Canal No. 1 until such time as 100% of the Permanent Drainage Easements have been acquired. This process remains ongoing.
