Water Conservation


July 8, 2021--Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-10-21 calling for a voluntary 15% reduction from 2020 water use levels across the state and added 9 additional counties under drought emergency. The proclamation included 5 common sense ways to reduce water use; e.g. reducing the time and frequency of outdoor irrigation, fixing leaks in a timely manner, and other indoor water-efficient practices. As mentioned in the Executive Order and consistent with the City's Water Conservation Program outreach, outdoor irrigation consists of up to 50% of residential water use. The most efficient and impactful way to achieve any reduction target is through reducing sprinkler run time and frequency, as well as quickly repairing leaks. Please view resources below on how to save water indoors and outdoors, as well as rebates available to Arcadia water customers.

May 21, 2021--Governor Newsom has declared a drought emergency in 41 California counties. While Los Angeles County has not yet been declared under a drought emergency, the U.S. Drought Monitor already shows the county to be in extreme drought.  The City continues to monitor the drought situation and would like to remind the community that the most impactful way to use water efficiently is by being mindful of outdoor irrigation.
