Recharge City

Award winning project exploring water recycling strategies for Los Angeles.

13 Recharge Sites v2 PK-01

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?
