The Del Rey Residents Association will discuss the possibility of localized flooding during winter El Niño storms at the group’s general fall meeting on Thursday, Nov. 5, at Westside Neighborhood School.

Flood control experts from the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers as well as representatives from Caltrans, the Los Angeles County Watershed Management Division and the Los Angeles Bureau of Street Services have been invited to speak during the meeting and address residents’ concerns.

Past floods have shaped the design of Del Rey’s three waterways — Ballona Creek, Centinela Creek and the Sepulveda Channel.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m., and Westside Neighborhood School is located south of Ballona Creek at 5400 Beethoven St. Write to for more information about the meeting.
