Water Conservation

Did you know that the average Southern California family uses approximately 500 gallons of water every day? Water is one of our greatest natural resources. It meets our daily needs for drinking, cooking, cleaning, bathing, and recreation.

Water in California is limited. By using water responsibly, Los Angeles County residents can make a huge difference in protecting this resource for future generations.

Watering the yard, filling the swimming pool or hot tub and other outdoor water needs consume about 70 percent of the water used in a typical single-family home. Landscaping with low water use California native or drought tolerant plants can cut outdoor water use in half.
