MWDSC Imposes Drastic Outdoor Water Restrictions


The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD or Met) provides domestic water service to a population of 19 million in Southern California. Not to be confused with Los Angles Water & Power which is portrayed in the movie "Chinatown"! MWD's two primary water sources are the CA State Water Project and Colorado River.


Met has imposed drastic outdoor water restrictions. MWD customers can only water outdoors one day per week! See LA Times article below. What's next for Arizona?
