A Wonderful Example of an Inner-City Residence Retrofitted for Water-Harvesting in Los Angeles, California

This is a great example for cities everywhere, and beautiful street theater.

Non-profit, TreePeople, put out a press release that a 1,500-year flood would hit a single residential property, but all would be okay due to a water-harvesting retrofit of cisterns, swales, infiltration basins, and dry wells.

See this video for the TV coverage of the event when 4,000 gallons of water from fire hoses was dumped onto the property in 10 minutes. Not a drop of water left the property; all was beneficially harvested. Flood control and water security all in one go!
