Voluntary Conservation Measures in Place/Rebates Available for Reducing Water Usage

In accordance with statewide emergency water conservation measures due to drought conditions, the City has enacted local watering restrictions and a water conservation policy. The City’s guidelines for local water usage are contained in Chapter 94 (Utilities) of the San Fernando Municipal Code, under the Division titled “Water Conservation”. Under this section of the municipal code, the City Council has declared that a Phase II water shortage currently exists, and residents are encouraged to reduce water usage, especially outdoors.

Some basic steps that you can take to reduce water usage include the following:

  • Check your property for water leaks or running water;
  • Reduce water times for your lawn/outdoor landscaping;
  • Take shorter showers;
  • Run dishwashers or clothes washers only when full; and
  • Install water-saving devices for outdoor irrigation systems.

The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) conservation requirement is 24% reduction. Click Here to view the City’s compliance. 

Also, since the City is a member of the Metropolitan Water District (MWD), property owners are eligible to participate in MWD-sponsored water conservation rebates and programs. Such programs include the purchase of high efficiency clothes washers and toilets, the installation of rain barrels to store and reuse rain water, and a $2 per square foot rebate for replacing turf with drought tolerant landscaping.
