West Basin and Mattel celebrate the conversion to recycled water! By using West Basin's locally-produced recycled water for irrigation purposes, we will help save nearly two million gallons of drinking water per year. For additional details on this project, read the official press release here.
West Basin recognized El Segundo Councilmember Don Brann with a certificate of appreciation for his extraordinary water conservation efforts. Councilman Brann and his wife recently transformed their home's yard into a beauitful drought-tolerant garden. We commend Councilman Brann for his commitment to a water-efficient lifestyle!

The State of California, through the California Water Management Planning Act of 1983, as amended, requires every urban water supplier to develop an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) every five years to demonstrate in detail how their agency manages their water supplies and demands under all hydrology conditions. West Basin's draft 2015 UWMP is available for review. The Public Hearing to consider comments is scheduled for Monday, June 27, 2016 @ 1 p.m. at West Basin's headquarters. Subsequent to the Public Hearing, the West Basin Board of Directors will consider adoption of the UWMP.
This plan demonstrates not only how West Basin plans to meet its service area's retail demands over the next 25 years, but also how they plan to provide long-term water reliability through supply diversification. Since West Basin's formation in 1947, West Basin has strived to ensure water reliability. Through its efforts in recycled water, conservation, education, groundwater recovery and ocean water desalination research, West Basin continues to be a leader in water reliability by investing in a well-balanced water supply portfolio.
