Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated May 7, 1964 partially reads, "Seepage in the vicinity of the Encino Reservoir is being investigated by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and 20 observation wells have been drilled to determine its source. The observation wells were sunk shortly after the first of the year after the city received complaints from area residents that water was seeping into the yards of their homes, approximately 300 yards below the huge water reservoir. The city has maintained that the leaks are from natural springs in the Hayvenhurst Canyon area, but independent geologists hired by area homeowners say the reservoir is the seepage source." Photograph caption reads, "Investigation - Paul Cunningham, caretaker of the Encino Reservoir, in background, points out one of the wells sunk to examine water seepage reported by two homeowners nearby."; See image #00129030 for additional photo in this series.
