Water Supply Management
Southern California is a semi-arid region and is largely dependent upon imported water supplies. A growing population, climate change, environmental concerns, and other factors in other parts of the state and in the western United States, make the region highly susceptible to water supply reliability issues. Careful water management that includes active water use efficiency measures not only in times of drought, but at all times, is essential to ensure a reliable minimum supply of water to meet current and future water supply needs.
The District finds and determines that because of the prevailing water conditions in the state, it is necessary and appropriate for the District to adopt, implement, and encourage participation in water use efficiency programs to ensure that there is sufficient water for human consumption, sanitation, and fire protection.
Our goal is to assist customers to become water efficient, by:
- Providing financial contributions to existing Metropolitan Water District incentives
- Developing internal water use efficiency programs
- Providing local rebate enhancements
- Making available educational workshops
