water springs in the Los Angeles area cannot be seeing by anyone, they are protected, that is the fresh water to the city.
If some people don´t understand that some things have to be preserved, let´s restrain the access to certain areas, it is allrigth to have recreational facilities in some areas under very close rangers supervition. Thank you for your attention
Yo creo que los grandes lagos son una bendición para USA, conservemos estos lagos para agua de consumo humano para el futuro
los manantiales alrrededor de Los Angeles estan protegidos y el publico no tine acceso a ellos.
Si hay gente que no entiende de cuidar recursos naturales no permitamos el acceso y si hay areas de recreación que sean protejidas escrupolosamente por los guardias forestale. gracias

She has innumerable faces. Spent many summers camping along the shore, but I especially love Negwegon State Park with its wild and unruly trees taking over the beach. The fact that it’s so unkempt is what makes it so wonderful. Makes you realize how so many of our beaches used to look.

Many great lakes in the world spread in the continents and countries. Good names lakes are HOMES (Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior), Victoria, Toba, etc. Its are interesting and have many functions : fresh water-home, fish industry, traveling and sources of energy. Some great lakes collapsed, because traveler and local people irresponsibility about them. The lakes are important for us, and we must save them forever….-

I was so excited to show my American husband the lovely areas I enjoyed.
You couldn’t imagine my dismay, on our first visit back to this region, when we went to my favorite local beach and found it closed due to the high coliforms. Since that time (10 years ago) I am very happy to see improvement in our waters. Please continue to make the clean water project a priority. There is still much to be done.
