MWD Pipeline Repair Will Lead To Water Conservation For Residents

October 23, 2023 ·

BEVERLY HILLS—The city of Beverly Hills announced on its website that crews from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) are planning repairs to a pipeline that delivers water to Beverly Hills. Water customers across the service area are being asked to conserve water from Monday, November 6 to Wednesday, November 8.

The city will be using water supplies from its existing reservoirs and its own water treatment plant while MWD work is completed.

Over the three days, the city is asking customers to refrain from outdoor watering and conserve water indoors as much as possible.

For additional water wise tips visit www.bhsaves.org. Such adjustments as the following can be completed:

Do your part, be water smart:

-Two (2) day per week watering due to  Drought:

Monday and Friday –  North of Santa Monica Blvd

Tuesday and Saturday -South of Santa Monica Blvd

-No watering (sprinklers or hose) after 9 a.m. or before 6 p.m.

-Approximately 8 minutes for overhead sprinklers and 15-20 for drip irrigation

-Turn OFF your irrigation system before a rain event. It can be left Off for long periods if there’s significant rainfall.

-Supplemental watering for trees allowed

-Violations will be issued for non-compliance

-30 percent citywide water reduction goal

-Find and fix leaks immediately

Water leaks are caused by running toilets. One toilet can run up to 200 gallons an hour. Other common continuous water flow issues are auto fills in pools or fountains, irrigation system issues and/or broken pipes.  Many leaks are not visible and can waste up to 5,000 gallons per day, the city of BH reports on its website.

For residents with continuous water flow issue at their property, check out the City’s Leak Flyer for more information. To see if there is a leak or are over watering one’s landscape – sign up for the City’s free Water Tracker program.
