Torrent worked closely with the Watershed Protection Division of LA Sanitation, City of Los Angeles to improve Stormwater drainage and aquifer recharge in 223 acres of tributary area in Los Angeles.
“LA Sanitation landscaped 19 residential rain gardens, four parkway swales and eight [MaxWell] drywells. Additionally, it constructed a 531,000-gal infiltration gallery, all of which contributes to 41 acre-ft. of annual infiltration.”
Wing Tam, assistant division director for LA Sanitation shares highlights of the project by the numbers, “Therefore, the 41 acre-ft. per year (13.4 million gal) of storm water collected by this project becomes part of the local water supply. This amount of water will be enough for the daily consumption of 360,000 people.” The City of Los Angeles has recognized the power of using drywells on projects like these. They are a low-cost, low-impact solution that has long lasting benefits to the communities in which they are installed.
