Kayaking, rafting and non-motorized boating could soon be allowed on the Los Angeles River for the very first time.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ruled last month that the 32-mile stretch of waterway is navigable.

Councilman Ed Reyes recently introduced a motion to establish a boating program. He hopes the move will help revitalize the L.A. River and bring communities closer together.
