El Nino Bounty @ Pio Pico MS

The Problem

Los Angeles is in the severe throes of a multi-year drought. Meteorologists explains that we will soon - hopefully - benefit from a desperately needed El Nino weather cycle, which will bring much needed heavy rains. We need to identify, map and design systems and locations to collect, store and use the water and systems to address this serious environmental problem. The audit and mapping we conduct will be used to make visuals for our school community.

Our Plan

We will map our school community identifying current uses and areas where positive change can be inexpensively and efficiently effected. For example, we will contact School District Administration to request rain barrels and downspouts to capture rain run off.
