Los Angeles County’s Bold Plan: Collaborate at regional level and plan at watershed level to bring multi-benefit rainwater capture projects to communities and reduce need for imported water
“Currently, Los Angeles County imports 58% of its water from more than 200 miles away, and the city of L.A. imports about 90% of its water.
