When it rains, Los Angeles sends billions of gallons of 'free liquid gold' down the drain
During one of this winter’s frequent storms, sheets of rainwater spilled from roofs, washed across sidewalks and down gutters into a sprawling network of underground storm drains that empty into the Los Angeles River channel. (Same goes for Ballona Flood Control Channel. Billions of gallons of rainwaterflow into the Pacific Ocean at Santa Monica Bay.)
You can reduce your water bill by capturing "free" rainwater.
Private homes cover 60% of our developed LA land mass.

PLAYA VISTA ALERT
Oilfield "fracking" is a new form of pollution that is the longest lasting damage to the land, worse than salting the ground to prevent plants and animals living on it, or a man growing food for his family, neighbors and you and me. Fracking permanently poisons, yes poisons, the underground water, permanently poisons the air, yes the air, as natural gas and associated poisonous gases seep out of the water table to harm all life at ground level, your pets, crawling children, and you and me. Fracking leads to water and air plumes of poisons stretching miles into all homes and bodies of wate
