The Department of Public Works has been actively engaged in preventive and responsive work during the recent storms. Among the largest emergency locations are:
 
Ongoing:
 
Iverson Road Sinkhole in Chatsworth
StreetsLA’s after hours emergency truck assisted LAFD in securing the site of the sinkhole to prevent additional vehicles or individuals from falling into it.  At this time, LA Sanitation and Environment has Emergency Sewer Repair consultants on site to assess the cause and damage. The Bureau of Engineering has also been on site for assessment.
