Conservation helps reduce overall regional water demands and ensure greater supply reliability for the region. In Southern California, conservation is becoming a way of life through everyday water-saving habits, sustainable landscaping, and water-efficient plumbing fixtures, appliances and equipment.
Funding for the SoCal Water$mart program is through a partnership between the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) and its 26 member agencies throughout Southern California. They are working together to help Southern Californians make the right conservation choices and access the rebates that are available.
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is a state chartered cooperative of 26 member agencies—cities and public water agencies—that serve about 18 million people in six counties. Metropolitan imports water from the Colorado River and Northern California to supplement local supplies, and help its members to develop increased water conservation, recycling, storage and other resource-management programs. Metropolitan draws supplies through the Colorado River Aqueduct, which it owns and operates. Water supplies also come from Northern California via the State Water Project and from local programs and transfer arrangements. About half of Southern California’s water supply comes from local sources, and these local supplies include increasing conservation, water recycling and recovered groundwater.
