Know Your H20 concepts gaining traction in Los Angeles

This five-minute video highlights several Know Your H2O concepts, including water reuse, low impact development, and the urban water cycle. The take away message is that all water, whether in the form of stormwater or wastewater, is WATER! As such, it should be treated as the precious resource it is, and not a nuisance to be wasted or rushed off the land. Practical solutions such as the green streets project on Elmer Ave in Los Angeles are a perfect example of the multiple benefit solutions Surfrider advocates for through the Know Your H2O program. Stories like this prove that change is possible as the traditionally separate segments of water management begin to coordinate. If change is possible in Los Angeles, it is possible everywhere!
