The City of Santa Clarita launched a new Web page this week,, providing information to the community about the City’s long-standing practice of responsible water management, not just in time of drought.

“Water conservation is important in Santa Clarita. The City is committed to using water wisely and protecting our most precious natural resource each and every day, not just in times of drought,” commented Mayor Laurene Weste.

The “Water Wise” page provides a holistic picture of the City’s water conservation efforts through the years, from landscape maintenance districts, parks and public rights of way, to all of the ways the City is planning for the future. The infographic at the top of the page provides fast facts and information about conservation in a quick, easy-to-read format.

Additional details on the page include: facts about low impact development and low-water use beautification projects; installation of more than 30 miles of Purple Pipe (which allows for use of recycled water for landscaping and parks); and the City’s use of permeable pavement to filter and enhance the local water supply at several projects.

California’s drought has impacted every community, including the City of Santa Clarita. The City working hand-in-hand with the Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA) and State organizations to raise awareness about the little and big ways every resident and business owner can make a difference. CLWA is asking every resident to reduce water use by 20 percent.
