Drought status and water supply

LDrought-O-Meter-Between-StepItUp-and-CutItBackatest Drought Status

In response to decreasing statewide water supplies, California is banning the watering of ornamental grass for commercial customers as of June 1, 2022. The ban does not include turf at residences or turf used for recreation or community purposes. This mandate will affect Western's commercial customers.

Additionally, The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is requiring that more than 6 million people in parts of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties—who rely on state water from northern California -- restrict outdoor watering to just one day per week due to rapidly worsening drought conditions. This mandate DOES NOT currently apply to Western customers.
