Slow It, Spread It, Sink It is a project began by Materials & Applications
(M&A) for the Los Angeles Environmental Affairs Department in 2008 in response to the
linked problems of polluted storm water flushing into the ocean from Los Angeles, the
lack of infiltration in this city, and the worsening water shortage.
By following the guidelines discussed in this website, business and property owners can not only prevent
pollution, but also reduce energy and water consumption, resulting in substantial
savings to their overhead expenses.
Join the community effort and green your property; more workshops are being organized
that will be open to the public through The Arid Lands Institute
at Woodbury University.
