New Watering Rule in Effect for Los Angeles

CLICK TO ENLARGE

The City Council approved new watering hours for homes in a move designed to lessen the impact on the city's exhausted water supply and simplify the rules for residents and the Mayor has signed the approval.
DWP customers whose street addresses end with an odd number - 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 - will be permitted to use their sprinkler systems on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m.

Those whose addresses end in even numbers - 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8 - will be permitted to do so on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m.


Addresses ending in fractions will be treated as whole numbers and observe the same day restrictions as others on their same side of the street, (ie: 4321 ½ is regarded as 4321, an odd-numbered address.)

Awareness and enforcement efforts are conducted by the LADWP Water Conservation Team, a group of trained professionals whose sole mission is to spot and stop wasteful water practices. Team members actively patrol Los Angeles communities to help inform customers of water waste they observe in progress and learn about through tips from neighbors and concerned citizens who call 1-800-DIAL DWP or send e-mails to waterconservationteam@ladwp.com
You will be ticketed and maybe fined for violations. First offenses are given verbal "warning" in the form of water conservation tips, water saving devices where possible and printed educational materials in order to raise customer awareness. Subsequent violations, however, can result in fines.  Monetary citations, when given, range from $100 to $600 and are listed as specific charges on the LADWP utility bill. No monetary citation is given without prior warning.
Some statistics and facts:

 Since September 2008, when the Team was first deployed, they have investigated 21,740 incidents, issued more than 7,500 warnings and fewer than 250 monetary citations.

 Changes to the Ordinance have no impact on Shortage Year Water Rates. Under active enforcement of the Ordinance, DWP asks customers to stay within their Tier 1 water allotments. Those customers who exceed their Tier 1 allotments will pay a higher price for the additional water they use. Shortage Year Water Rates, along with the prohibited uses of water, are effective tools for reducing water use in Los Angeles.




Prohibited uses of water, which apply to all phases of the Ordinance and all LADWP customers, include:
·   Watering of any hard surfaces such as sidewalks, walkways, driveways or parking areas unless flushing is needed to protect health and safety;
·   Outdoor watering between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.;
·   Outdoor watering during periods of rain;
·   Allowing runoff onto streets and gutters from excessive watering;
·   Allowing leaks from any pipe or fixture to go unrepaired;
·   Washing vehicles without using a hose with a self-closing water shut-off nozzle;
·   Serving water to customers in restaurants unless requested.
·   Using water to clean, fill or maintain decorative fountains unless the water is part of a recirculating system;
·   Installing single-pass cooling systems in new buildings;
·   Installing non-recirculating systems in new car wash and commercial laundry systems; and
·   Allowing large landscape areas to be watered without rain sensors that shut off irrigation systems.

The Ordinance also requires that hotel and motel operators provide guests with the option of not having towels and linens laundered daily.

 Since June 2009, when the City enacted the Ordinance, thereby launching Mandatory Water Conservation, LADWP customers have reduced their water use by 20%. The amount of water saved in Los Angeles - more than 42 billion gallons - is enough to serve the cities of Burbank, Santa Monica, Long Beach and Beverly Hills combined.

Conservation is necessary. Rain in Los Angeles is not a real factor in terms of our city's water supply since most of our water - 89% last year - is imported from external sources. Water supply shortages continue across California and much of
the West.

Customers may apply for a Hardship Variance from specific Ordinance requirements, including customers in High Fire Severity Zones. Variance Instructions and Forms are online at www.ladwp.com/waterconservation and at all LADWP Service Center locations. For more information, call 213-367-0771.
