We propose a new set of experiments to test the types, scale, and adoption of green infrastructure needed to effectively impact urban hydrology and biogeochemistry. Simultaneously, we will test a series of approaches based in communication science that explore the perceptions and priorities of actors at scales from households to institutions and explores engagement effectiveness.

Like many cities in semi-arid regions, Los Angeles relies on extensive, centralized redistribution projects for its water supply. Water is transported hundreds of kilometers to support agricultural and urban activities in southern California; however, allocations from remote sources have been declining due to drought, over-extractions, and competing water needs.
