The LA Stormcatcher project is aimed to prepare Los Angeles for the upcoming El Nino winter.
TreePeople, in association with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the Los Angeles County Flood Control District, and the City’s Bureau of Sanitation, have envisioned a way to address rainwater catchment using a traditional approach of cisterns.
Entitled, “StormCatcher Project,” (#LAStormCatcher), Los Angeles homes will be retrofitted to direct rain from the roof into large tanks that can be monitored and controlled electronically. The installations are designed to increase local water supply, improve water quality and reduce flood risk.
