ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the move of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson declaring the tributaries of the Los Angeles River a traditional navigable river. It notes the significance of the declaration on protection initiatives for the Compton Creek, one of the tributaries of the Los Angeles River. It mentions the lack of legal basis for defenders of the creek as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers declared only part of the river as navigable. It adds that the move showed that EPA scientists are concerned with the protection of other types of rivers.
