Additional water restrictions have gone into effect as California’s drought continues to worsen


As California’s record drought continues to worsen, water districts across the state have issued a series of restrictions in an effort to reduce water waste.

Kagel Canyon, Acton, Val Verde, Antelope Valley and Malibu join the multitude of regions already impacted by these water conservation efforts, all of which benefit from retail water service by water supply districts. Los Angeles County Water.

Mandatory restrictions put into effect ask all homeowners to reduce their water usage by 30%, while limiting watering of lawns using a similar method already in place with customers supplied with water by the Department of Los Angeles water and electricity.

Residents are limited to watering two days per week, based on address numbers and property type, as follows:

  • Addresses ending in an even number can water on Tuesdays and Fridays,
  • Addresses ending in an odd number can water on Mondays and Thursdays,
  • Commercial properties may water on Mondays and Fridays,
  • No watering periods longer than 10 minutes,
  • Watering is only allowed between 6 p.m. and 10 a.m.

For the city of Malibu specifically, sprinkler irrigation is prohibited between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily, and no landscape irrigation can take place within 48 hours of rainfall.

In doing so, the city hopes to save more than 28 million gallons of water per year by installing these new measures.

A partnership between LACWD and the City of Malibu also offers residents a cash rebate if they remove their lawns for a more efficient option. Residents can claim the rebate of $5 per square foot of sod removed up to $25,000.
