MVWD Statement on Water Use Restrictions:

Last week, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California announced that Southern Californians need to cut back outdoor watering to 1 day per week beginning June 1. MVWD currently has water use restrictions in place that limit outdoor watering to 3 days per week (Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday) and prohibits daytime watering. MVWD customers are urged to significantly cut back outdoor watering, if possible to one day per week, while hand watering trees to maintain the natural urban canopy. We must do our part to conserve now or risk further restrictions on water use.  MVWD is not enforcing 1 day per week watering restrictions at this time, but customers are encouraged to do so where possible. Should MVWD’s Board of Directors take action to implement greater restrictions, customers will be notified directly as well as through general public communication.

MVWD recognizes and appreciates our customers’ excellent conservation efforts, but we need to cut back water use even more. The time is now.
