Los Angeles Zoo plans drought-proof water strategy

World Water: Stormwater Management, Summer 2018 – In response to emerging challenges, such as increased water demand, new regulations, and threats of climate change, the City of Los Angeles, California, United States (US), is in the process of completing the One Water LA 2040 Plan. The Plan takes a holistic and collaborative approach to consider all water resources from surface water, groundwater, potable water, wastewater, recycled water, dry-weather runoff, and stormwater as “One Water.”

The planning effort was led by representatives from both LA Sanitation (LASAN) and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and shaped by input from other City departments, regional agencies, and local stakeholders. In efforts to improve water quality as well as reduce the City of LA’s potable water demand, One Water LA is working with the Los Angeles Zoo (LA Zoo) to identify the necessary steps to incorporate stormwater (SW) infiltration, capture, reuse, and treatment, and to increase the use of municipal recycled water (RW) at the LA Zoo.
