Earlier this week I went and did more investigation of the two urban seeps I mentioned last week. I've got more to share about them... but in the mean time, I thought I'd share this video that was posted on the LA Creak Freak site. It's called Slow the Flow and talks about ways to reduce runoff in Southern California. While specific plants and other design elements may not work elsewhere (for instance, it does not snow in this part of southern California), the general ideas are very much relevant to any area with human-constructed structures.
I haven't watched it quite yet so let me know if you like it or not. If it's a good video I'll have to link to it more in the future.
