Summary Report: Greenway Rivers Arterial Stormwater System (GRASS)

Drought, water supply reliability and pollution
have sparked political action within the City of Los
Angeles (LA). The Low Impact Development (LID)
Ordinance seeks to capture the first ¾” of any rain event
for infiltration to LA’s drinking water aquifers. Since 88%
of LA’s water is currently imported from hundreds of
miles away, this represents a shift to local water use.
This project followed a scientific method to develop a
system of multifunctional greenways that address park
poverty while capturing stormwater through a variety of
BMPs. The client for this project is the City of LA Dept.
of Public Works Bureau of Sanitation (LADPW BOS).
