LA StormCatcher – Marilla Street
Location: Marilla Street, Northridge, CA 91325
This residence located on the block of Marilla Street participated in The Collaborative’s StormCatcher Project (#LAStormCatcher) which retrofitted pilot homes with large tanks (cisterns) and rain gardens to demonstrate how Angelenos can secure a climate-resilient future by capturing stormwater at home.
Although cisterns aren’t used widely locally, they are an age-old, proven tool to help combat drought globally. The StormCatcher Project features cisterns built for the 21st century, equipped with cloud-based monitoring and controls to optimize system performance in real time.
