Water Harvesting Campaign

Rainwater Harvesting and Greywater Systems benefit the environment by reducing stormwater runoff and water consumption.

Rainwater Harvesting

 

Rainwater harvesting is an abundant source of local water. A thousand square foot roof can gather over 6,000 gallons of water in an average rainfall year in Los Angeles. You can use your captured rainwater to water your garden, lower your water bills, and for emergency water supplies.

 

Harvesting rainwater that would otherwise drain off rooftops also reduces the stormwater flowing into local creeks, rivers and ocean, keeping pollutants like pesticides, fertilizers, automotive fluids and pet waste out of regional waterways.

Greywater Systems

 

Irrigating our gardens accounts for over half of household water use in Los Angeles, and probably more in the Palisades. Greywater systems let you use gently-used water from your showers, bathtubs, sinks, and laundry and re-use it to enhance your garden to reduce the burden on Los Angeles’ over-extended imported water supplies.

Conservation

 

Water conservation is still our most cost-effective and environmentally friendly water source. Conservation promotes sustainability, reduces environmental impact, saves money, and helps the Palisades and Los Angeles thrive both in years of water abundance and drought.
