LA to Finalize LID Ordinance

On January 20, the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation will hold an informational meeting on the low impact development ordinance

This landmark regulation will help cut down on the amount of polluted runoff that reaches our beaches by requiring new and redevelopment projects to capture rainwater on site, allowing it to filter into the ground and recharge local groundwater supplies.  To learn about the ordinance, which was passed in Dec 2010, members of the public can attend the meeting.
