The action taken by the LVMWD Board includes:

- Irrigation with potable water is now limited to one day each week and that limitation will remain in place until further
notice. Service addresses ending in even numbers may irrigate Monday; addresses ending in odd numbers may
irrigate Tuesday.

- Irrigation is limited to no more than 15 minutes per station or zone on designated watering days.

The new irrigation restrictions take effect immediately; enforcement will begin December 7, giving time for property
owners to adjust their irrigation systems. While LVMWD will continue to provide an initial warning letter for violations,
fines will escalate to $500 for repeated non-compliance.

Properties using recycled water may continue to irrigate on a three-time per week schedule, as that supply has not
been as impacted by the drought as potable water.

In a continuation of existing policy, potable water customers may continue to use drip irrigation or engage in hand-
watering on any day of the week without restrictions.

The new “One and Done” one day per week policy for potable water irrigation joins the list of conservation measures
already in place:

- No irrigation between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
- No irrigation in the 48 hours following rainfall.
- Hoses used for car washing must have a trigger nozzle.
- Irrigation may not run off the property into streets, gutters or onto adjacent properties.
- The washing down of sidewalks, parking areas and driveways is not permitted, unless an approved water broom is
- Fountains or water features must use a recirculating system.
- Hotels and motels must provide multi-night guests with the option to use towels and linens for more than one day.

Las Virgenes Municipal Water District provides potable water to residents of the cities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas,
Hidden Hills, Westlake Village and adjacent unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County including the Santa Monica
Mountains and Chatsworth. To learn more, visit
At their November 24 meeting, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District
(LVMWD) Board of Directors adopted a new policy limiting potable water
irrigation to twice per week. The new action was taken because the District
has fallen below the State Water Resources Control Board mandate to
reduce usage by 36 percent or face significant financial penalties of up to
$10,000 per day.

unsolicited donations from WHA members. We need your help to raise
the rest of the money. Please send your contributions to:

Water quality continues to be one of the most important environmental
concerns. Every individual can play his or her part to help keep our water
clean. One of the ways to ensure that our water remains free from toxins is
to wash your car the proper way. Many individuals overlook the fact that it
takes approximately 500 gallons of water to hand wash a car and that all of
that water is washed down our streets into local waterways. The easiest way
to ensure environmental protection is to take your car to a commercial car
wash where the waste water is discharged to a wastewater treatment
facility. However, if you choose to wash your car at home, keep in mind the
following suggestions to prevent additional toxic discharge into our creeks
and rivers:

  • Wash on an area that absorbs water such as gravel or grass. This
    allows the water to be filtered before it enters groundwater, storm
    drains, or creeks. Avoid washing cars on concrete or asphalt
    pavement unless it drains into a vegetated area.
  • Minimize water usage. Use a spray gun with flow restriction to reduce
    water volume and run-off.
  • Always empty wash buckets into sinks or toilets.

Another option is to utilize one of the City of Calabasas permitted Mobile Car
Wash operators. The City ensures that all operators use appropriate
preventative measures whenever they are engaged in car washing activities.
