About:

Southern California enjoys a Mediterranean like climate and is largely dependent on imported water supplies. Although the District has utilized cheaper local water supplies; growing populations, environmental concerns, and other factors throughout the state make the region susceptible to water supply reliability issues. Careful management includes active conservation while in drought and at all times to sustain the way of life our communities enjoy.

Tip of the Month:

Did you know that every square foot of turf requires over five feet of water a year? California's yearly average rainfall only measures in the inches. Consider removing areas of turf that are only used for decorative purposes and use water efficient landscaping in its place. Choose native plants and apply mulch to the soil!
