The Los Angeles City Council voted this week to concur with Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s (LADWP’s) recommendation to move to Phase 3 of the City’s emergency water conservation ordinance, limiting outdoor watering to two days per week. The new watering limits take effect June 1, 2022.
Customers with street addresses ending in odd-numbers may water on Mondays and Fridays, and customers with even-numbered street addresses may water on Thursdays and Sundays, before 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m. The new restrictions expand existing restrictions that have been in effect throughout the City, including prohibiting watering between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and limiting outdoor watering with sprinklers to eight minutes per station on permitted watering days. Watering with sprinklers using water-conserving nozzles are permitted for up to 15 minutes twice a day, on the permitted watering day.
Members of the public can report water waste to the Water CRU by visiting ladwp.com/waterwaste and filling out a form online. LADWP is also urging customers to act now to take advantage of the many water- and money-saving rebates and programs available to both residential and commercial customers. Residential customers can find a comprehensive list of rebates and programs at www.ladwp.com/save. Commercial customers can visit www.ladwp.com/cwr for rebates and programs.
