Water Conservation

Conserving water is critical in Southern California, where water supply is a constant challenge.  To help conserve our most precious resource, the City practices several water conservation strategies, such as the use of reclaimed water, drought-tolerant landscaping, and smart irrigation controllers.  Over 500 acres of parks, medians, slopes, and open space are irrigated with reclaimed water—saving the City about 470 million gallons of drinking water per year.  To lessen its demand for water, many of the City’s medians and open space are landscaped with drought-tolerant plant material, and the City uses state-of-the-art irrigation technology.
