There was big news on February 21 in the work to make Los Angeles a sustainable and resilient city. Mike was thrilled to join Mayor Eric Garcetti and representatives from LA Sanitation and the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power to announce that by 2035, 100% of the water treated at our four wastewater treatment plants will be recycled.

This will reduce our demand for imported water by providing as much as a third of the water we need to recharge groundwater basins or irrigate landscaping, and it will make our city more resilient against climate change and earthquakes.

Mike thanked organizations like Heal the Bay, Surfrider LA, and Los Angeles Waterkeeper, which helped make this incredible progress possible.
