A sump is a reservoir that acts as a collection area for storm water overflow. Torrance has several sumps that encompass fairly large areas that can be used to simulate a variety of outdoor venues like open fields, marshes, or countryside paths. The advantage of using one of these locations is the size and flexibility of usage. These sumps are large enough for all your parking and equipment storage needs. Also, with proper notification, special effects are not a problem.
The fee for using one of these areas is $3,000 per day which includes the use of the property, a City Liaison, a safety officer (if required), your film permit, and processing. Extra fees may apply if additional City staffing is required.
