Currently, the city imports 85% of our water. Oftentimes, this water can be expensive and is subject to price increases by the Metropolitan Water District. Reducing our reliance on imported water will not only save Angelenos money, it will also create a more resilient city. We will increase our local water supply through continuing water conservation efforts, by capturing more stormwater, stepping up water recycling, and recharging and cleaning the San Fernando Groundwater basin while expanding advanced water treatment in the city.
