Following California’s driest three-year sequence on record for precipitation, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted emergency regulations to reduce water demand and improve water conservation. The result of the regulations requires the City of La Palma to implement its Water Shortage Contingency Plan Stage 2. At the July 5, 2022, City Council Meeting, the Council approved the Stage 2 Water Alert in La Palma. 

Stage 2 requires residents and businesses to limit their lawn watering and landscape irrigation to two days per week between the hours of 6:00 PM and 9:00 AM the following morning.
