   MA......NHATTAN BEACH TAKES ACTIONS TO CONSERVE WATER
   Manhattan Beach , CA ( May 10 , 2022 )
    – The City declared a Stage 1 Water Shortage on January 18 , 2022 , following the State of Emergency issued by Governor Newsom . This declaration limits outdoor watering in Manhattan Beach to three days per week . Since the declaration , California has experienced the
   driest first three months of a year in the state’s recorded history
    .
   “The drought we are experiencing is creating incredible challenges to our water supply , stated Mayor Hildy Stern . “It is incumbent on each of us to take steps to reduce the risks associated with the drought . Collectively , we can work together to reduce our overall water consumption to ensure we don’t enter into an even larger crisis . Please join our efforts to conserve water . ”
   Over the last three years , water supplies continue to be impacted by the combination of high temperatures and below - average precipitation . Currently , ninety - six percent of the City’s water supply is imported from Northern California and the Colorado River through the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California ( MWD ) via West Basin Municipal Water District .
   For the first time , a Tier 1 water shortage at Lake Mead has resulted in federal allocation cutbacks to Arizona , Nevada , and Mexico . If drought conditions persist and Tier 2 is triggered , California would experience its first allocation cutback from the Colorado River . Furthermore , on March 18 , 2022 , California water officials announced the reduction of State Water Project ( SWP ) water allocations from fifteen percent to only five percent .
   As a result , on March 28 , 2022 , Governor Newsom called on local water suppliers to move to Level 2 of their Water Shortage Contingency Plans , which requires various water districts throughout the state to reduce water usage by twenty percent . In response , the City is considering activating Stage 2 of the City’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan , which would further reduce outdoor watering to two days per week . According to Governor Newsom’s
   Executive Order N - 10 - 21
    , as much as fifty percent of residential water use goes to outdoor irrigation; and much of that is wasted due to evaporation , wind , or runoff caused by inefficient irrigation methods and systems .
   Additionally , the City has already identified several irrigation system leaks through its
   Water Meter Replacement Program
    , which replaces current water meters with new , highly accurate meters through a technology known as Advanced Metering Infrastructure . Once fully implemented , residents will have the tools available to regularly monitor their own water usage .
