Waterworks District No. 36 – Val Verde – Phased Water Conservation Plan has ended effective June 1, 2016

On May 5, 2015, the California State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) adopted an emergency regulation requiring a 25 percent reduction in overall potable urban water use statewide, in accordance with Governor Brown’s April 1, 2015, Executive Order.

Waterworks District No. 36 was required to reduce potable water use by 25 percent from amounts used in 2013. In order to achieve the mandatory 25 percent reduction in water use, a Phase I Shortage was declared for District No. 36, in accordance with the Waterworks Districts Rules and Regulations.

The County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors suspended the Waterworks Phased Water Conservation Plan prompted by the State Water Resources Control Board’s adoption of a revised water conservation regulation in May 2016. The June 21, 2016, Board action to suspend the Phased Water Conservation Plan was prompted by a recent change in the State Water Resources Control Board’s emergency conservation regulations for small water systems. The new regulation allows the District to suspend the emergency water conservation plan that has been in force since June 8, 2015. Watering of lawns is no longer restricted but previous prohibitions for wasteful water practices, such as hosing off driveways, overwatering lawns and washing automobiles without hoses regulated by shutoff nozzles, are now permanent.

Limiting outside watering and conserving indoor water use whenever possible will help District No. 36 sustain efficient water use habits into the future.

The glass below shows the level of conservation progress by customers since June 1, 2015, the overall goal for the District. This image will be updated on a monthly basis to monitor the amount of conservation in the District.
