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.
Private homes cover 60% of our developed LA land mass.

Farmers and Kern County, California Commissioners' Meeting: Well Water Contamination California grows 2/3rds of the nations produce. Some farmers in the Central Valley farmers are buying recycled oil water from Chevron. Kiran visits the Central Valley's Cawelo Water District where the drought is causing farmers to use recycled oil water to irrigate their crops. She takes in the smells so you don't have to.
