Learn from LA Sanitation and Environment how to foster sustainability and implement green infrastructure as you tour several of LA's growing inventory of green infrastructure projects and other sites including the Recycled Water Facilities and Zero Waste Facilities. You'll also find out how the City benefited from the local ballot initiative Prop O to fund these new projects.
