Glendale Already in Phase III Water Conservation

First published in the Dec. 24 print issue of the Glendale News-Press.

Glendale Water & Power, a member agency of the Metropolitan Water District (MWD), proactively moved to Phase III of its Mandatory Water Conservation Ordinance back in February of 2022.
The MWD’s Board of Directors on Thursday declared a Regional Drought Emergency for all of Southern California and called on all water agencies in the region to encourage and immediately reduce their use of all imported water supplies. However, GWP has already been in compliance, the agency said in a statement.
GWP heeded the state’s previous calls for increasing water conservation and recommended that the Glendale City Council move toward mandatory conservation. Phase III limits outdoor watering to two days per week, Tuesdays and Saturdays for no more than 10 minutes per station.
Taking this step early helped the city conserve water in Lake Mead and the Colorado River areas. GWP supports MWD’s call for the entire region to begin conserving water supplies both on the State Water Project and the Colorado River to help ensure water supplies for the future, GWP said.
