LA Sanitation is a City of Los Angeles Environmental Agency leading the City to a more sustainable and resilient future while providing quality of life basic services. Through programs of clean water, watershed protection, and solid resources they are seeing healthier waters, achieving sustainability, and adapting to climate change.
LA Sanitation began its collaboration with Heal the Bay in 1985 when Hyperion Treatment Plant was put on track to achieve greater treatment levels and discontinue discharge of biosolids to the bay. Today, LA Sanitation operates and maintains one of the world’s largest wastewater collection and treatment systems, which conveys and treats 355 million gallons of wastewater per day generating high quality recycled water and green energy.
In collaboration with groups like Heal the Bay, LA Sanitation has emerged as a leader on the issue of stormwater pollution – the #1 source of coastal pollution. To name just a few of their innovative efforts, LA Sanitation: led the charge for the 2020 Water Integrated Resource Plan, implemented a comprehensive sewer system renewal and management program leading to over 80 percent reduction in sewer overflows, and instituted a far-reaching LID Ordinance for Los Angeles.
Very recently, LA Sanitation’s Solid Resources Program joined forces with Heal the Bay to successfully make Los Angeles the largest city in the nation to adopt a single-use bag ban. With focus and commitment to its mission “To Protect Public Health and the Environment,” LA Sanitation has emerged as strong leaders in environmental stewardship, quality and production.
Formed in 1991 in Calabasas, Incubus began as a group of high school friends frequenting the Los Angeles music scene but quickly graduated to a band of musicians playing for audiences across the globe. Members Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger, Jose Pasillas II, Chris Kilmore, and Ben Kenney have enjoyed mainstream success since the 1990s with critically acclaimed albums such as Make Yourself (1999) and Light Grenades (2006). After a hiatus that began in 2008, the band came back in 2011 with their much anticipated and aptly titled sixth full-length studio album, If Not Now, When?
Incubus' commitment to Heal the Bay and our mission has been nothing short of remarkable. For almost a decade, Incubus has generously supported our work through grants from their Make Yourself Foundation. The band has delivered our message and advocated for us through far-reaching social media efforts and by working closely with us on a call-to-action video advocating for a ban on single-use plastic bags. For their most recent tour, Incubus was able to considerably reduce their carbon footprint while entertaining more fans and playing more shows than ever before.
Well-known for their philanthropic efforts, Incubus has solidified themselves as a group of artists who use their public voice and renown to champion worthy causes and continue to serve as a model of using celebrity as a means of spreading goodwill.
