Public Water Agencies Group

The Public Water Agencies Group (PWAG) is an association of 17 retail water districts, irrigation districts and wholesale municipal water districts across all of Los Angeles County that addresses water issues. Due to an increased need for water-use efficiency outreach and programs, PWAG created the Conservation and Education Team (CET) to provide conservation and educational resources within Los Angeles County.

Water-Saving Seasonal Tips

Plant Wisely
Plant native, drought-resistant plants in the yard to reduce water use.
Take Shorter Showers Showering can use up to 25 gallons of water every 10 minutes.
Check for Leaks
Leaky pipes and sprinklers account for up to 90 gallons of water waste per day.
Install New Hardware
Flow restrictors and water-saving showerheads save water in your home.
Wash Wisely
Wash the car with water from a bucket, not a running hose. Washing the car when it is cool outside will help decrease evaporation.
Water When its Cool
Watering plants only when needed and during the coolest parts of the day means you can use less water and have happier plants.
Cover the Pool
Use a pool cover to reduce evaporation.
Don’t Run the Tap
Scrape food off plates instead of rinsing before placing in dishwasher.
Don’t Use the Hose
Use a broom or leaf blower – not the hose – to rid your yard of leaves and dust.)
Thaw it Slowly
Thaw frozen foods overnight in the refrigerator instead of running them under hot water.
Trick the Toilet Tank
Place a plastic water bottle full of rocks or sand to fill the toilet tank with less water.
Don’t Run the Tap
Wash fruits and vegetables in a bowl of water instead of under the tap.
Full Loads Only
Only run the dishwasher or washing machine when it is full.
