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.
