LOS ANGELES (AP) - Supervisors have ordered inspections of all Los Angeles County dams in the wake of flooding concerns at Northern California’s Oroville Dam.

The Los Angeles Times says (https://lat.ms/2liD3L3 ) supervisors unanimously approved the order Tuesday. The Department of Public Works has 30 days to report on the condition of dams, spillways and debris basins.

It also must create a priority list of flood-control projects needing completion.

LA County operates 14 dams and reservoirs, most of them in the San Gabriel, San Fernando and Antelope valleys.

Many were built in the 1920s and 1930s.
