Water Conservation in Manhattan Beach

May 12, 2015 08:30AM ● Published by DigMB Staff

Curious about how you can save water at home and in your garden?

The City of Manhattan Beach is holding an informational meeting tonight (Tuesday, May 12) at 6:30 p.m. in the new Manhattan Beach Public Library to go over what Governor Jerry Brown's recent mandate means for Manhattan Beach.

To meet the new mandate, the City’s Water Conservation Ordinance has been set at a Stage 3 Water Shortage Restriction, which prohibits washing a vehicle anywhere other than at a commercial car wash; and limits watering landscape to one time per week for 15 minutes.

In addition, the landscape watering period is from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. on Wednesdays for even numbered addresses, and Fridays for odd numbered addresses, unless a drip irrigation system is used. These requirements are in addition to the Permanent Water Conservation Requirements, as well as the restrictions in Stages 1 and 2. 

The city expects to begin enforcement of these updated water conservation measures in June and asks that residents and community members begin following them now. Warnings will be issued to those who violate the Water Conservation Ordinance, with continued disregard of water restrictions resulting in escalating fines up to $500 per day.

The City asks all members of the community to continue to conserve water and remember that in addition to the Stage 3 conditions, the Permanent Water Conservation Requirements section of the Water Conservation Ordinance will remain active.

If you have questions about the new restrictions, call the Public Works Department at (310) 802-5324.
