Responding to the hard-earned lessons learned from enduring several droughts over the past 30 years, 南加州人已经改变了他们看待和使用水的方式. The result is impressive: Southland residents use less water today than they did in 1990, 尽管我们的人口增加了400多万. We’ve achieved this together as a region by supporting smarter plumbing and building codes, 提高对自然资源重要性的认识, 资助节水退税计划, and enlisting students to bring conservation home through Metropolitan’s education programs. As we confront the three driest years in California history and the prospect of a fourth, the public is being asked to conserve more now then ever before to stretch our limited supplies and ensure we are continuing to deliver safe and reliable water to Southern Californians.
保护 is not only a way of life here, it’s a vital water supply source. Without conservation, the effects of drought would be more swift and more severe. 当我们在日常生活中使用更少的水, we reduce water demands across the region and achieve greater supply reliability for us all.
Metropolitan has invested over $864 million in conservation rebates to incentivize purchases of water-efficient devices like toilets, 流量监测装置, 智能灌溉控制器和高效洗衣机. Our targeted turf rebate program — the largest in the nation — has supported the transformation of millions of acres of water-guzzling grass into beautiful California Friendly© and native plant landscapes. Metropolitan continues to lead the way by calling for the elimination of non-functional turf for commercial, 工业, 公共属性. This is a valuable tool to quickly and permanently decrease overall water use to enhance our water reliability.
