LA Rainwater Harvesting Program Debut: A Huge Success

Yesterday, the LA Stormwater Team attended Mar Vista’s Wise Water Expo to start collecting sign-ups for the City’s new Rainwater Harvesting Program.

The program offers eligible residents and businesses free installation and materials of rain capture systems. The City either provides rain barrels for on-site irrigation or disconnects downspouts to allow for direct watering routes to permeable surfaces such as landscapes and gardens.

The goal of the program is to minimize the amount of rainwater from entering the streets, where it has the potential to pick up pollutants along the way to the ocean as well as to conserve the use of potable water outdoors.

Mar Vista residents who were eager to save money, conserve water and protect our local environment were the majority of folks who visited our booth. During the event, 60 residents signed up for the program!
We are looking forward to much more participation and success with the launch of this program throughout the City.

For more information on the program , including sign-up details, please visit or call Codi Harris at (562) 597-0205.
