Waterworks District No. 29 - Malibu – Phased Water Conservation Plan

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 the Governor’s April 1, 2015 Executive Order.

Individual cities and communities are facing mandatory reductions from 4% up to 36%, based on their water usage in 2013. District No. 29 is required to reduce potable water use by 36%.

The glass below shows the level of conservation achieved by customers since June 1, 2015, the overall goal for the District, and the target level of conservation to date in order to meet the overall goal. This image will be updated on a monthly basis to monitor the amount of conservation needed to meet the State mandated level of conservation in the District.

Target Quantity (Allocation)

In order to achieve the level of reduction required by the State Board, per the Rules and Regulations for the Waterworks Districts, a Phase VIII Shortage was declared for District No. 29, which mandates water use reductions and Target Quantity (Allocations) that customers must meet to avoid surcharges.

Customers with Small Water Meters (¾" and 1" Meters):
The Target Quantity (Allocation) is a 36% reduction from the average amount of water used in your area by all residential customers with similar sized meters in 2013. This averaging methodology is used to ensure that customers that are already conserving water are not unfairly required to reduce their water consumption. Approximately 46% of all District No. 29 customers with ¾” meters are already meeting the Target Quantity (Allocation).

Customers with Large Water Meters (Meters 1.5" and Larger):
The Target Quantity (Allocation) is a 36% reduction from your individual customer usage in 2013.

Surcharges

Under the Phased Water Conservation Plan, customers are charged their normal water rate for all the water that they use.

A conservation surcharge of 0.5 times the normal water rate is charged for the first 15% of water use above the Target Quantity. An additional conservation surcharge of 1.0 times the normal water rate is charged for all water used in excess of the first 15% above the Target Quantity. Examples of conservation surcharge bill calculations are shown below.

Examples of conservation surcharge bill calculation

1) Customer with a ¾" water meter and a Target Quantity of 30 Units, who uses 25 units in July/August

Examples

2) Customer with a ¾" water meter and a Target Quantity of 30 units, who uses 45 units in July/August
