Some landlords in Los Angeles are proposing a new way to conserve water: have tenants in rent-controlled buildings pay their own water bill.
California’s water board said Tuesday that residents saved less water in February than in any other month since it began tracking conservation efforts last summer.
Water usage by residents in Los Angeles fell this summer from the levels used last year, LADWP officials reported Friday.
An increasing number of Southern Californians are willing to give up their grass to help conserve water – and to take advantage of a doubled lawn removal rebate.
DWP Director of Water Operations Martin Adams says the agency has taken a leading role for consolidation in the state.
Metropolitan Water District officials are expected to ask more than 1.7 million foothill residents to scrimp on their water usage, starting Friday.
