A Summer of Clean Water


Welcome to the middle of summer – a time when we are all looking to cool off in or near clean water! Are you curious about how the City of Los Angeles is working to keep our rivers, creeks lakes and beaches clean during the hottest season of the year? Then be sure and check out this new video entitled LA’s Many Clean Waterways, recently released by LA Sanitation and share it with your friends and family.

This five-minute educational video features vignettes about six different City-sponsored projects that are working around the clock to clean our regional waterways. From the Proposition O-funded South Los Angeles Wetlands Park and Echo Park Lake Rehabilitation Project to projects like the Elmer Avenue Neighborhood Retrofit and Garvanza Park that utilize cutting-edge stormwater treatment technology, this film highlights recently completed clean water projects in communities throughout all of this great city.

Don’t miss this video about clean water projects that are keeping LA’s water free of pollutants. Because at this time of year, it’s all about having a summer of clean water.

    Very cool project.We recently launched a public art campaign to draw awareness to the dangers of pollutants in our storms drains and Truckee River. We needed to point people toan educational website, http://www.tmstormwater.com. A local artist, Bryce Chisholm, was commissioned to paint characters on two downtown storm drains. The campaign perpetuates storm drains as the mouth of the river. As in, we wouldn’t put radiator fluid, oil, or glass in our mouths, so we shouldn’t put them in the river’s mouth. The campaign has been cataloged with the following video link http://youtu.be/-obqC450nc8. Check it out.
