YOUR WATER. YOUR FUTURE.

Our Mission

We thank you, residents and businesses of Long Beach, for doing an exceptional job saving water in response to California’s historic drought. You’re an example to the rest of the state on how a community can transform beautifully into using water sustainably.

Long Beach is still in an exceptional drought, even though winter storms boosted our key reservoirs and improved drought conditions.

Still, you don’t need to know weather to know whether you need to conserve. Long Beach may no longer have a specific state-mandated conservation standard, but we need to continue using our water efficiently. It’s integral to the exceptional quality of life we have in our community.

There are so many diverse ways to save water, whether you live in an apartment, condominium or house, or you’re a business owner in our bustling economy. Our new mission: to keep up our diverse water efficient habits. Sustainability, after all, is the Long Beach way of life.
