To date, the LADWP has spent $1.2 billion over the past 10 years to control dust blowing off Owens Lake, in compliance with regulations.
A local ministry is moving ahead with plans to consolidate its Eastern Sierra operations in a larger, permanent facility to better provide spiritual and bodily solace to thousands of Inyo and Mono county residents.

Walls are usually built to separate one side from another or to keep something in and something out.
