This week’s puzzle comes from listener David Smith of the San Francisco office of the Environmental Protection Agency. He’s in town and posed the question at tonight’s meeting about Los Angeles River navigability.
A hint: in determining navigability, the EPA considers four factors:
1 – Is there enough water to float a boat?
2 – Is there a history of boating?
3 – Can the public access the waterbody?
4 – Are there plans for improvements in the future that would increase boating?
