Smart Water Solutions
Every year in Los Angeles, 85% of the city’s water is pumped in from hundreds of miles away. At the same time, the LA Bureau of Sanitation has calculated that every half-inch of rain that falls in the city is 3.8 billion gallons of water. This water runs across streets, sidewalks, yards and roofs – picking up trash and debris before polluting our rivers and oceans.
TreePeople provides Smart Water Solutions and tools needed to learn about the benefits of capturing water, calculating savings, building smart water systems, and learning how these solutions have been rolled out across Los Angeles County.
