In early November, we debuted our groundbreaking pilot project: LA StormCatcher (#LAStormCatcher). The collaborative brings Los Angeles County and City agencies and community members together to capture stormwater in the face of ongoing drought and a changing climate reality.

Our first pilot site, located in North Hollywood, kicks off a series of renovations designed to show how capturing stormwater at home can increase local water supply, reduce flooding and improve water quality. The project launched with a  press conference that brought a rush of positive buzz and interest, and even had LA’s own Mayor Garcetti and County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl in attendance. Read more >>

“California is facing the worst epidemic of tree mortality in its modern history. A crisis of this magnitude demands action on all fronts.” -Governor Jerry Brown

Last month, Jerry Brown declared a tree emergency in California. Across our state, 22 million trees have already died from four years of historic drought and raging wildfires.

Have you heard the news? TreePeople is facilitating a groundbreaking collaboration between our region’s top water agencies, with the help of the engineering firm Tetra Tech, to help fight our Stage 5 drought emergency.

The project includes the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the Los Angeles County Flood Control District, and the City’s Bureau of Sanitation working together to show Angelenos how the coming winter rains can be harnessed for water resilience.

The partnership, known as the Greater Los Angeles Water Collaborative, is set to unveil the first pilot site in a series of residential installations that promise to turn Los Angeles’ traditional approach to water upside down.Read more >>
