Conference:
UCSD Urban Expo 2010
Key findings:
In this research, I wanted to determine what kind of action the City of San Diego is taking for rainwater harvesting; such as how it is going about developing and integrating it into policy and infrastructure, and what obstacles this faces. I have found that the city has only recently begun to seriously consider rainwater harvesting recently due to a combination of renewed water conservation initiatives as well as the increasing need for a reduction in storm water runoff pollution. Any further action that San Diego will take largely depends upon the results of a current rain barrel pilot study. Until then, rainwater harvesting efforts in San Diego will for the most part be limited to individual efforts.
