Title Arroyo De La Sacatela storm drain
Description Arroyo De La Sacatela storm drain, across which storm drain passes in tunnel. Sacatela Creek was a perennial stream in the early 20th century that began in the Franklin Hills and joined Ballona Creek in Koreatown/Mid-City, between Wilton, Westchester, and Country Club Drive. A seasonal stream flowing from Silver Lake Reservoir area also joined Sacatela Creek near the intersection of today's Beverly Boulevard and Madison Avenue. In 1929 the stormdrain was laid in the stream's path and the creek was filled.
