Recent history[edit] In 1991, the section between Lassen Street and Parthenia Street was one of the last sections of natural stream beds in the San Fernando Valley to be made a concrete channel.[2][3] In 2007, the wash was cleaned up after being cited as a fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus.[4] Pacoima Wash has been the site of several rescues of people, mostly of children and teenagers trapped in the spring runoff. Recent stories have appeared in 1985,[5] 1993,[6][7][8] 1995,[9][10][11][12] 1996,[13] 1998,[14][15] and 2006.[16] In recent years there have been efforts to create a greenway along the Wash connecting the communities of the Northeast San Fernando Valley. In 2004 the Pacoima Wash Greenway Master Plan was created by Department of Landscape Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona which focuses on the portion of the Wash within the City of San Fernando.[17] In 2008 environmental non-profit Pacoima Beautiful started the Pacoima Wash initiative.[18] The goal of this project is to create a linear greenway composed of bike lanes and a walking path along a 12 mile stretch of the Wash between the Pacoima Dam in Sylmar and the Tujunga Wash in Arleta. The Pacoima Wash Vision Plan,[19] which covers the Sylmar and Pacoima portions of the Wash was produced in 2011. An addendum to the plan focusing on the Arleta portion of the Wash is currently being produced. Several new parks along the Wash are in various stages of completion. 8th Street Park is a 4.75 acre park in the City of San Fernando which will be completed in spring of 2014.[20] The city of Los Angeles is creating preliminary designs for a park along the Wash between El Dorado and Telfair Street.[21]
