LA Stormwater published an article, Saving Lots of Drops, highlighting LA’s efforts in designing and constructing “green streets” that use environmentally-friendly strategies that reduce, treat and capture stormwater runoff.
“The Laurel Canyon Boulevard Green Street Project will construct a series of vegetated infiltration swales and drywells along the northeast side of Laurel Canyon Boulevard between Terra Bella and Kagel Canyon Streets.”
Torrent is proud to bring our signature MaxWell® drywell technology to LA streets to advance the green street movement. The amount of stormwater that will be captured and treated is substantial. Over the course of a normal rain year, the Laurel Canyon Boulevard Green Street Project has the potential to replenish 13 million gallons of rainwater annually into underground aquifers. Going green is golden for California given the circumstances of their epic 5-year drought. As California begins to recognize the benefits and potential of going green it will allow Torrent to work side-by-side and replenish millions of gallons of rainwater in more places.
Torrent Resources, a 43-year-old company specializing in drywells, offers the MaxWell®, an engineered system that has been installed in the Southwest United States more than 75,000 times. The MaxWell® is simple, effective, maintainable, and best of all, it’s second to none when it comes to recharging groundwater.
