Water Quality, Equity, and Climate Resilience

Water quality monitoring in Los Angeles County was impacted by the pandemic, extreme heat, and unprecedented wildfires this year. We can’t stress enough the urgent need for equitable, climate-resilient communities with ample access to safe, healthy, and clean environments. See a recap from our summer of sampling local freshwater areas.
