Project: Quincy Jones Green Alley Stormwater Infiltration Project

Description: The grantee will retrofit two alleys in South Los Angeles with stormwater capture and infiltration BMPs including infiltration trenches, infiltration planters, permeable pavers, dry-wells, and trash capture systems. Grantee will plant trees, vines, shrubs and grasses. BMPs will mitigate flooding, reduce strain on the existing stormwater system, and reduce demand for imported water through groundwater recharge.

Reference Number: 0540P01201

Implemented By: Trust for Public Land

Objective: This project will use green infrastructure, signage and community engagement to improve water quality in the Pacific Ocean by preventing stormwater from entering Ballona Creek from the Quincy Jones Green Alley Network in South Los Angeles and educating the community about the importance of this project on our environmental health. The project will help protect aquatic ecosystems by reducing stormwater pollution, which is the greatest source of nonpoint source pollution flowing into Santa Monica Bay. It will also increase green space and safe routes for alternative transportation within a severely disadvantaged neighborhood. The alleys are within the 55-acre Quincy Jones Green Alley Network, a priority for greening in the South L.A. Green Alley Master Plan.
