Culver City Rainwater Harvesting Program – Final Report

The City of Culver City and the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission (SMBRC) developed the Culver City Rainwater Harvesting Program (CCRH Program) as a pilot project completed between October 1, 2010 and September 30, 2011. The CCRH Program was developed to provide Culver City residents and property owners the opportunity to learn about urban water management and participate in best management practices on their properties. In addition, Culver City and the SMBRC implemented this pilot program to evaluate the overall cost and effectiveness of an ongoing rainwater harvesting program.

This report is intended to provide the analysis necessary for municipalities and organizations to develop a similar program that is cost effective and successful.
