In the midst of California's drought, Beverly Hills residents and businesses began saving water even before the state-mandated cuts went into effect. But we have more work to do to reach the required goal to cut our water use by 32%.

In May 2015, the City of Beverly Hills passed an emergency water conservation program, which includes a watering schedule, other outdoor water use restrictions and possible penalties for customers who do not reduce water consumption by at least 30%.

The City is committed to working closely with residents and businesses to help them reach their goals. We can save water together while preserving the quality of life that makes Beverly Hills a special place.
