West Basin Program Addresses Future Water Supply

West Basin Municipal Water District’s “Water for Tomorrow” program renews its commitment to protecting, securing, and diversifying its water supply portfolio.

The program will highlight West Basin’s community outreach, education programs, and numerous free conservation events where materials such as free rain barrels will be available to District customers, as well as turf replacement classes and greywater workshops. Speakers from the District are also available to discuss the Water for Tomorrow Program with local organizations and community groups.

“Ensuring that our region’s needs are met both now and in the future is our most important role as water stewards,” said Board President Scott Houston. “Water for Tomorrow addresses our service area’s unique water supply challenges by ensuring long-term water reliability and security for the communities we serve.”

Southern California’s water supply is less certain and less reliable because it comes from a variety of sources, including Northern California and the Colorado River. Unpredictable ebbs and flows of imported drinking water, environmental and regulatory decisions impacting supply availability, and the uncertainty affiliated with climate change, mandate preparation and sustainable management of resources to confront future water supply challenges.

In the District’s efforts to secure its water future, West Basin and the Water for Tomorrow Program will continue to advance conservation and water use efficiency as a cornerstone of its resource management plan and continue to invest in its recycled water program, potable water reuse and desalination.

West Basin will be participating in Topanga Earth Day on April 27, 2019, so be sure to visit their booth with your questions.
