Feliz Navidad de Los Ángeles


Happy Christmas Eve from Los Angeles, where the weather is lovely -- although all that sunshine, mixed with bromide, chlorine, and dissolved oxygen, is producing carcinogens in some of our local reservoirs, including the scenic Silverlake Reservoir. The LA DWP will have to drain 600 million gallons of water from reservoirs to address the problem. The most stunning aspect of this story for me is that 600 million gallons of water equals just one day's supply of water.

Happily, it's been a wet December, and we're all looking forward to a good soaking in January.
