When it rains, Los Angeles sends billions of gallons of 'free liquid gold' down the drain
During one of this winter’s frequent storms, sheets of rainwater spilled from roofs, washed across sidewalks and down gutters into a sprawling network of underground storm drains that empty into the Los Angeles River channel. (Same goes for Ballona Flood Control Channel. Billions of gallons of rainwaterflow into the Pacific Ocean at Santa Monica Bay.)
You can reduce your water bill by capturing "free" rainwater.

During heavy rains, our industrial parking lot would have six inch puddles. Our cement contractor, De Olivera Concrete removed approximately 1,000 feet of concrete, dug a 8 by 8 by 8 foot deep Catchment Basin, filled it with gravel, and installed a steel grate so rainwater could percolate back into the earth. This win, win situation helped the tenant and put much need rainwater back into our aquifer.
