Everyone is responsible for caretaking our environment and conserving water. Before LA was covered in concrete, stormwater naturally percolated into the ground water and filled the aquifer. Since development, stormwater is not directed into the ocean, causing the loss of potable water.

One of the most effective ways of conserving water is by participating in stormwater capture. But, participation must be affordable In order for people to participate. LABT created educational workshops to teach the public about our water crisis, and how to participate and build affordable stormwater capture systems for residential and business properties themselves.

Methods for stormwater capture and groundwater replenishment include site assessment and construction of rain barrels, rain gardens and other infiltration systems that can be simply implemented.
