Celebrate the Completion of Westside Park Rainwater Irrigation Project!

The LA Stormwater Program invites you to the Grand Opening Celebration of the Westside Park Rainwater Irrigation Project on Saturday, July 23rd at 11am (details below).

The Prop O funded project at the park is significant for the quality of life of the surrounding community and the health of the coastal environment. Runoff from approximately 3,700 acres of land adjacent to South Fairfax Avenue is being collected and treated to reduce stormwater pollution. Prior to the project’s completion, this water ran straight into Ballona Creek and Santa Monica Bay.

Reusing rainwater to irrigate Westside Park is central to the project’s purpose. Utilizing this rainwater will cut costs and conserve this valuable resource. The project will also aid in reducing local beach closures, benefit marine habitat and help the City reach its stormwater pollutant reduction goals.

In addition to the stormwater improvements, the park now features recreational amenities as well. A new jogging path, an improved perimeter fence, a garden and a fitness playground have been installed.

Join Councilmember Herb J. Wesson, Jr. of the 10th District and the Departments of Public Works and Recreation and Parks in celebrating this great project. Details are as follows:

Date: Saturday, July 23, 2011

Time: 11:00 AM

    How can we help with the city’s rainwater harvesting efforts? We have a family business that manufactures economic rainwater harvesting systems capable of really making a dent and storing thousands of gallons of water. Please visit our website for more information and let me know if there is anyway I can be of assistance with your program. http://Www.rainwaterreuse.com
