Watch Stormwater Workshop 2021 Webinar Video On Demand

August 12, 2021

Our August 10, 2021, workshop on “A Strategic Approach to Integrate Stormwater and Sewer Systems” is now available for viewing! Recent implementation of multi‐benefit stormwater projects and programs have been gaining momentum throughout Southern California, especially within Los Angeles County. These projects are intended to provide benefits of increasing water supply, improving water quality, and providing tangible community benefits. However, unless these projects capture and infiltrate water in areas that augment groundwater, or the captured stormwater is used directly on‐site, then no water supply benefit is achieved. The expert panel discusses these issues as well as a guide for cities on how to implement the strategy and how to approach wastewater agencies about working together.
