Turning the Water Off…and On

Hosted by

With years of reduced rain and snow now predicted, Mayor Eric Garcetti wants to reduce LA's dependence on imported water. He also wants to cut water usage by 20% in less than two years. But efficiency and conservation won't be enough. Garcetti says the City that once rejected what was called "toilet to tap" is now ready to recycle wastewater — like Orange County already does. Can LA capture the rain that does fall instead of washing it out to sea?
