Los Angeles & Water Imports
The nearly 10 million people in the city and county of Los Angeles require a lot of water--most of which is imported snow melt from the eastern Sierra Nevadas and Rocky Mountains, hundreds of miles away. University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), researchers Stephanie Pincetl and Mark Gold are studying how Los Angeles can reduce its water imports and better capture, store and reuse water for a more sustainable water supply.
