UCLA research group wins $18,000 grant to install water capture system

Five students received an $18,000 grant in early May to install a storm water capture system on the UCLA campus. Students on UCLA’s Sustainability Action Research’s Resilience Team plan to build a 200,000-gallon capture system that could save 1.22 million gallons of water per year, said Austin Park, a team leader and third-year civil and environmental engineering student.
