WEFTEC® attendees are invited to visit two examples of green infrastructure in the City of Los Angeles on Oct. 19. The tour time was adjusted to 8:15 a.m.–12:15 p.m. to accommodate a midday return to the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The tour includes South Los Angeles Wetland Park, formerly a transportation maintenance facility with 36,425 m2 ofimpervious surfaces. The area now captures urban runoff and reduces bacteria, oil and grease, sediments, and metals. Attendees also will visit Elmer Avenue, a green street project that captures 161,880 m2 of residential rainwater runoff and infiltrates it for groundwater recharge.
