Minimize Outdoor Watering

Consumption of water can be up to 70% of all potable water used. By adhering to your water agency's recommended watering schedule, a significant amount of water is saved. Converting to more drought tolerant plants and grasses is an important step in decreasing the amount of water used outside.

Cash In Your Lawn

In place of thirsty and high maintenance turf, put in California Friendly plants and mulch, and permeable pathways to save money while conserving water.

For more information on the City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s “California Friendly Landscape Incentive Program”, click here.

Rain Barrels

Save water by collecting and reusing rainwater from gutters and downspouts to water your lawns and gardens. Rain barrels help minimize the amount of water flowing into your storm drains and local water ways.

Help Stop Pollution

Simple housekeeping practices could help keep toxins like motor oil, fertilizers, pesticides or paints out of our local rivers, creeks, lakes and beaches.

Protect the City's Sewer System

Fats, oils and grease often stick to the insides of sewer pipes when washed into kitchen plumbing systems. Fats, oils and grease can block pipes, create backups and cause sewer overflows on private property and streets.

Graywater Systems

Graywater systems collect water from your bathroom sinks, showers, tubs, and washing machines to irrigate your landscape. To obtain more information on graywater systems within the City of Los Angeles, click here or visit http://www.ladwp.com/graywater
