WATER LEADERS RESOURCES

Across Los Angeles County, local leaders and residents are joining together to shape how the region invests public money in green stormwater capture projects.

 OurWaterLA has developed this resource library for people representing their communities either as appointed members to Safe Clean Water Program oversight committees or as members of the public who want to have a say in LA’s water future. All Safe Clean Water Program committee meetings are fully open to the public.

The Safe Clean Water Program will invest about $285 million per year in stormwater capture projects across the county. Water policy and infrastructure are complicated. We want to support our community stakeholders with strategic and technical information on an ongoing basis. We aim to ensure everyone can play a meaningful and supported role in decision-making about how to spend this money in a way that most benefits our communities. 

With this goal, feel free to use the resource documents below. Your knowledge and experience will truly be invaluable to the process of investing in a more equitable, healthy and resilient region.
