Census 2020
L.A.: Are you ready to be counted? Census 2020 is around the corner.

The results will determine not only our representation in Congress, but how over $115 billion is spent every year on California schools, healthcare, housing, transportation, and other vital programs in our neighborhoods.

But we won’t get an accurate count in 2020 unless everyone participates.
No one can underestimate the stakes: L.A. County is the country’s most challenging region to count. Over half of Angelenos live in hard-to-count areas. And if Angelenos in our immigrant communities are too afraid to open their doors and fill out their questionnaires, L.A. could lose billions over the next decade in federal funds. READ MORE

"Don't Flush That" Campaign
Our sewer system carries wastewater to one of four  water reclamation plants , where it is highly treated and discharged into the river or ocean. Flushing anything but human waste and toilet paper can cause blockages, back ups, and sewer line breaks. Unfortunately, when this happens, untreated sewage can enter the storm drain system and impact our beaches.
You can help protect our waterways, beaches, and the environment. Please don't litter, and never use your toilet as a trash can. Unused medicine and sharps such as needles and lancets can be dropped off at  SAFE Centers  across the city.
