Water Quality

The City’s storm drain system is unlike the sewer system. The sewer system carries water from your indoor drains to wastewater treatment plants. The storm drain system releases untreated water collected from rainfall and other sources into the local streams, lakes, and ultimately the ocean. 

Water Efficient Landscaping Regulations

The purpose of the Water Efficient Landscaping Regulations and Guidelines (WELO) is to promote the design, installation, and maintenance of landscaping in a manner that conserves regional water resources by ensuring that landscaping projects are not unduly water-needy and that irrigation systems are appropriately designed and installed to minimize water waste.
