January 6, 2023

Normandie Avenue Elementary School is located at 4505 South Raymond Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90037 approximately 6 miles south of Downtown Los Angeles

Start the new year with our third WaterTalks for Agencies and Electeds workshop! Join us Friday, January 6th from 9AM - 12PM for a no-cost tour of green infrastructure projects at Normandie Avenue Elementary School.

The campus tour will focus on recent green infrastructure capital improvements funded by the California State Water Resources Control Board's, Drought Response Outreach Program for Schools (DROPS). DROPS provided school campuses with the funding to implement and demonstrate the multi-benefits of low-impact development (LID) including: reducing stormwater pollution, water conservation, water supply augmentation, energy conservation, and increased awareness of water resources.

Participants will hear from LAUSD Facilities Services Division Maintenance & Operations representatives and the school project team including Council for Watershed Health, Barbara Hall Inc., Studio-MLA, TreePeople and Nature Nexus Institute as we learn about the success and challenges of building and operating green infrastructure on school campuses. LA County Watershed Coordinators will also be present to share about the Safe Clean Water Program and funding opportunities for school greening projects. Coffee will be provided!

Tours will be led by the following project proponents:
