Spreading Grounds

This layer was created to represent stormwater spreading grounds operated by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works. These spreading grounds are selected and managed for capturing as much water as possible during storms. Locations were chosen with permeable soil formations to enable recharging of underground aquifers. An estimated 30 to 40 percent of the water used in the County is pumped from groundwater supplies.

To map the location of recharge facilities.
