Green Los Angeles Stormwater: Regional Solutions
Abstract:The City of Los Angeles has embarked on a comprehensive effort to manage water quality in urban runoff. This effort is driven largely by Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) that require City action to address pollutants discharged from City municipal storm sewers. To guide TMDL implementation activities, the City prepared a Water Quality Compliance Master Plan for Urban Runoff. In addition, the City has prepared TMDL Implementation Plans to address specific pollutant concerns. Central to all City stormwater management activities is the implementation of regional solutions consistent with the City's long-term policy to develop a green sustainable infrastructure. These regional solutions are being implemented in a manner that provides multiple community benefits, including management of pollutants in urban runoff, support of regional water conservation needs, and improvements in quality of life for City residents through establishment of increased open/green space.
