Recharge City

Recharge City won 3rd place in the Dry Futures Competition (2015) in the Pragmatic category. The project continues to evolve with presentations at the Landscape as Necessity Conference (2016), and the latest at 2017 California Water Reuse Conference.

To identify plausible sites for groundwater recharge and water reuse, this project undertook a holistic mapping of the water infrastructure for the metropolis – ultimately compiling and using data from over 50 local, state, and federal agencies.

Recycling water is a necessity for Southern California to survive, so how can this massive infrastructure project to close the water loop create a better city for us to live in?
