Drought Response

Waterworks Districts Preparation

The Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts (LACWD) has been proactively managing its water resources by storing excess water supplies during wet years for use in a drought period and by providing water conservation incentives through rebates and other programs. With the decrease in the available water supply this year, LACWD plans to pump more water from the groundwater basin, draw water from reserves, and through a multi-channel media campaign, request customers to reduce their water use. For future preparation, LACWD has initiated long term solutions by developing arsenic and hexavalent chromium treatment strategies.
