Los Angeles, CA – To minimize potable water use, this 126-acre park was reengineered through collaboration with the Los Angeles County Community Development Commission (CDC) and Los Angeles County Public Works (LACPW) to provide a sustainable new water source using a unique stormwater management system to recycle the runoff from the 375-acre watershed. This system captures 60% of the urban runoff (dry and wet weather first-flush flows), treats the captured flows to improve water quality, and recycles the water for onsite irrigation use. This unique design reduces the need to purchase water from outside sources, adds beauty to this amenity for an underserved community, and exemplifies how Southern California can successfully implement the capture and reuse of our stormwater runoff.
PACE provided multiple phases of project development, lab services, piloting, concept development, water treatment facility engineering, planning division graphics, and will work with the City staff through startup and operations support services on this innovative and unique treatment system.
