IoES in LinkTV’s Earth Focus — Restore, Reclaim, Revitalize: Meet the Communities Working to Make the L.A. River Better for All

Through UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, students are working on new ways to improve the Los Angeles River.  Students are developing an interactive map that shows what type of contaminants are found at the 110 brownfields, 16 superfund sites and 154 toxic release sites within one mile of the river and its tributaries. They are also developing a fact sheet that compares the risk of toxin exposure at these sites to everyday risks like driving a car.
