Pack 3789: Water Conservation Presentation

California Drought Map:

  • Current Conditions and Impact of California Drought:
  • How much water do I use at home each day?

Estimates vary, but, on average, each person uses about 80-100 gallons of water per day. In 2018, two laws were passed that built on California’s ongoing efforts to make water conservation a way of life. The laws establish a standard of 55 gallons per person per day until January 2025, and then to 50 gallons per person per day in 2030.

  • How do I find out how much water my home use?
    • The Las Virgenes Municipal Water District has adopted a “water budget system”. Every household’s water budget consists of Indoor Need, Outdoor Need and certain Adjustments. Indoor water budget is calculated with 55 gallons per person per day.

  • Is that any change or restrictions on water usage in effect?

Not yet. As California’s drought worsens amid scorching heat across the state and challenging water supply conditions in Northern California, California Governor has called on all Californians to reduce water use by 15 percent.
