Artes is a model of water management in metropolitan Los Angeles. It was developed to investigate the potential for maximizing local water supplies and reducing imports across Los Angeles and its hundreds of water agencies. Model results have helped assess the implications of local water supply on urban water systems reliability, stormwater capture and water reuse, groundwater management, environmental flows, economics, and urban landscapes (trees and plants). The model is a product of the California Center for Sustainable Communities at UCLA and was developed through a collaborative research network spanning UCLA, the University of Utah, and Colorado School of Mines. The project was funded through the National Science Foundation's Water, Sustainability, and Climate program.
