by Staff

No outdoor watering, showers limited to five minutes, and no mowing lawns are some of the restrictions that will be most impactful to residents of LA County.

Starting on September 6th and lasting all the way until September 20th, residents and business owners in specific areas around LA County will be asked to cease all outdoor watering, as well as reducing water usage in other ways. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California has announced that this decision to limit watering is required because of a critical water pipeline that needs to be shut down for repairs.


The areas that will be affected by the water-saving request are Beverly Hills, Burbank, Glendale, Long Beach, Pasadena, San Fernando, and Torrance. Some areas already have existing water conservation requirements from June 1st that will stay as is. Some of the specific rules are to stop outdoor watering altogether, stop mowing the lawn, take five-minute showers, never leave water running when washing dishes or brushing teeth, and to only run full loads in the washing machine and dishwasher.
