Mandatory Water Conservation is Here

Originally uploaded by CD-13
Starting today, all Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) water customers are subject to mandatory water conservation regulations including the restriction of outdoor watering to Mondays and Thursdays only.

The shortage year water rates pricing schedule will reduce all LADWP water customer’s allocations by 15 percent and will raise the rate for any water used beyond the allocation. Customers who conserve water will not be impacted financially, and customers already conserving 15 percent will not be affected by the new measures.

Watering with sprinklers will be restricted to Mondays and Thursdays, but hand watering (using garden hoses with shut-off nozzle devices) is exempted. All outdoor watering is now prohibited between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

You can find your allocation by calling 1-800-DIAL-DWP or by visiting
