California American Water to Begin Water Waste Patrols in Its Los Angeles and Ventura County Districts


As drought conditions continue to affect communities across the state, California American Water announced it will be stepping enforcement of its water shortage rules by implementing water waste patrols. The increased monitoring reflects ongoing drought conditions and a need to further curtail water consumption during the dry summer months.

Patrols will begin on Monday, August 8, 2022, throughout the company's Los Angeles County and Ventura County Districts. California American Water is partnering with Green Media Creations, Inc., and their employees will be in co-branded vehicles and will carry their company identification. The patrols will monitor for prohibited irrigation such as watering on non-designated days, overwatering, overspray and hosing down hard surfaces like driveways.

"The purpose of our water waste patrols is not to punish or shame over-watering," said Jessica Taylor, Southern California Director of Operations. "This is yet another tool we can use to educate customers on up-to-date watering schedules and incentivize further conservation. We want to help our customers do the right thing and will provide resources and tools that can assist them."

First time violators will receive a warning and will be prescribed corrective measures. California American Water will work with these customers to educate them about the drought and the associated water use restrictions. Continued violations may result in fines.

California American Water is calling on all consumers to immediately reduce their water use and follow their District's watering schedule as outlined below.
