    Los Angeles hasn’t always had the best reputation when it comes to water, although the region has made some progress since the water wars with Owens Valley farmers.  

    Los Angeles has been adopting more sustainable practices with water harvesting and storm water runoff which includes viewing the entire LA basin as a watershed. This year the Stormwater Capture Master Plan was put into place by LADWP, to address the need to capture the water that is so swiftly lost to the ocean through the current Flood Control System. 

    There is more information on Los Angeles and Water in this New York Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/07/opinion/sunday/los-angeles-city-of-water.html?_r=0
