The Silver Lake Reservoirs Conservancy was recognized for 25 years of fighting to preserve the Reservoir this weekend at the Music Box Steps Celebration (another local landmark, an outdoor stairway famous for a scene in a Laurel & Hardy comedy). Top photo: the cake! Bottom photo: L.A. City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, who represents Silver Lake, presents SLRC president Craig Collins with a certificate of appreciation.

Probably, but exactly how remains to be seen. Given the focus on using local water, recycling and conservation, it is likely that our Reservoir — and the water in it — will be a key component of the City’s long-term watershed management solutions in the midst of this historic drought. The SLRC remains committed to preserving the historic character of the Reservoir complex, helping the region solve its water challenges, and representing the interests of the local community. Stay tuned, and meanwhile check out this LA Times story on the latest developments:

West Silver Lake Drive looking north across Silver Lake. West Silver Lake Drive was created by real estate developers George W. Dickinson and Company in 1925, when they developed a new housing project along the west shore of Silver Lake. ”Moreno Highlands Lake Front homes,” were completed in 1926-1927. Engineers working on streets, curbs and sewers referred to the drive as ”Redesdale,” a street in the hills northwest of Silver Lake (Photo: Los Angeles City Engineering Staff).
