Implementation of the Phased Water Conservation Plan for the Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts

UPDATE for Waterworks District No. 40

On February 2, 2016, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) approved the extension of the Emergency Water Conservation Regulations through October 2016. The new regulations include several revisions that allow for adjustments to urban water suppliers’ conservation requirements based on climate, population growth, and new local drought-resilient supply credits. The only impact of the revised regulations to the Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts is in District 40, which will benefit from the climate adjustment allowance. The SWRCB recently confirmed that the adjustment allowance will reduce District 40’s water conservation standard from 32 percent to 28 percent, effective March 1, 2016.

On March 1, 2016, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors reduced the Phased Water Conservation Plan shortage level for District 40 from Phase VII to Phase VI.


In response to a potable water reduction mandate from the State of California (more information on the State's mandate), the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, acting as the board of Directors for the Waterworks Districts (Districts), implemented a Phased Water Conservation Plan for the Districts on June 8, 2015.

The purpose of this Phased Water Conservation Plan is to minimize the effect of a shortage of water supplies on the customers of any or all of the Districts during a water shortage emergency.
