Green Streets

Examples of Green Streets

Green Streets takes the relatively simple task of improving City alleys with permeable pavers and turns it into an opportunity to infiltrate storm water runoff. In North Hollywood alone, four alleys slated for reconstruction will infiltrate 30 acre-feet of water every year into the San Fernando Groundwater Basin; this is enough water for 60 families!


Green Streets works to develop and implement new and sustainable solutions for managing storm water. It’s a pioneering way of dealing with rainwater, one of our region’s most precious resources, and it is a strategy that will help to transform Los Angeles into a true present-day Emerald City.
