West Basin Municipal Water District Declares Water Shortage
The West Basin Municipal Water District Board of Directors has officially activated its Water Shortage Contingency Plan and declared a water shortage level one for the service area representing nearly one million people in 17 cities and unincorporated areas in Los Angeles County.
West Basin has six water shortage levels, corresponding to increasingly severe shortage conditions as compared to normal reliability conditions. Level one requests voluntary reductions in water usage, in line with the Governor’s recent request that Californians reduce water use by 15 percent. While West Basin is not implementing mandatory water use reductions or rationing, that could change.
“The Board action today will increase awareness of the importance of water use efficiency and conservation as a way of life,” said Board President Harold C. Williams, MSCE, P.E. “Even though our current Urban Water Management Plan shows that West Basin water resources are reliable for the next 25 years, even in multi-year droughts, there is a sustained need to use water wisely considering our naturally arid and changing climate conditions. Water-saving actions today will help to alleviate demand and stress on our current water supply reserves.”
