Now is the time for stronger protections, not weaker ones.
When it rains in L.A. County, millions of gallons of water flow over paved surfaces like rooftops, sidewalks, parking lots, and streets. This "urban runoff" picks up animal waste, metals, oil, toxic materials, bacteria, and pathogens, carrying them to our storm drain system to be dumped into our local rivers and beaches, usually with little or no treatment.
Leadership Hermosa Beach and the U.S. Green Building Council-LA (South Bay Chapter) are championing Energy Upgrade California, and they invite you to attend a home tour of an Energy Upgrade in Action at the Fortunato's Green Idea House in Hermosa Beach. Home tours will be conducted at 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Join Heal the Bay at our annual awards ceremony and gala fundraiser to recognize our honorees and celebrate with nearly 1,000 of Southern California's environmental, business and entertainment community leaders who all share our love for the beach and dedication to ocean protection.
