1867 – 1868

Prior to 1867, the San Gabriel River empties into the Ocean near the current outlet of the Los Angeles River. In 1867, a logjam on the San Gabriel River near Whittier breaks, resulting in a new channel being cut in a southerly direction, emptying into Alamitos Bay, at its current location.
