Award winning project exploring water recycling strategies for Los Angeles.
To identify plausible sites for groundwater recharge and water reuse for the 502 million gallons per day of treated effluent that is dumped into the Pacific, this project undertook a holistic mapping of the water infrastructure for the metropolis – ultimately compiling and using data from over 50 local, state, and federal agencies.
Recycling water is a necessity for Southern California to survive, so how can this massive infrastructure project to close the water loop create a better city for us to live in?
