Capturing stormwater in the Los Angeles Basin

Dams in the front range of the San Gabriel Mountains capture runoff that is conveyed to a network of spreading grounds that recharge local aquifers with an average of 200,000 acre feet of water a year — or enough to supply 400,000 households. A recent study found that an array of projects could significantly boost stormwater collection in the Los Angeles Basin, particularly in the Los Angeles River watershed.
