Which Southern California cities face water cutbacks on June 1?

About 6 million residents of Southern California will soon be reduced to one-day-a-week watering under new restrictions caused by severe drought and climate change.

The first mandatory action from Southern California’s Metropolitan Water District will go into effect June 1 and include communities from Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Bernardino counties — but not all of them.

The rules would target areas that rely heavily or entirely on the State Water Project, a Northern California water supply that officials say is in real danger of depletion.

Areas receiving water from the Colorado River and other sources will no longer exist, at least for now.

According to MWD, all or part of the following cities and communities depend on water from the State Water Project and will be affected by the new restrictions:

“The reality is, this drought has left us without the water supplies we need to meet normal demand in these areas,” said MWD General Manager Adel Hagekhalil. “To ensure we have enough water for basic human health and safety needs, people in these communities must immediately and dramatically reduce their water use.”

Affected agencies include: Calleguas City Water District, Empire Domestic Utilities Authority, Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, Los Angeles Water Department, Three Valleys Municipal Water District, and Upper Valley Municipal Water Districts San Gabriel.

Each member body will decide how best to implement the restrictions. Some, such as the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, have outlined detailed plans for enforcement and patrols; Others, including the Los Angeles Department of Water and Electricity, are still working on the details.

MWD plans to monitor the agencies’ progress and may penalize any failure to cut enough.

If major improvements are not immediate and obvious, a total outdoor watering ban could happen in affected communities, Hagekhalil said.
