The Vista Press: March 9, 2018
The Vista Press covers how community health groups and policymakers recently met in Los Angeles to advocate for a program to fight pollution and drought by capturing more rainwater and urban runoff. Water runoff carries paint, solvents, pesticides, and is therefore highly polluted; the article quotes PI's Elva Yanez: "Children, pregnant women and the elderly are at the greatest risk for illnesses associated with contaminated stormwater. Gastroenteritis, respiratory diseases, hepatitis, eye ear skin infections. It's a huge problem."
