On December 17, 2007, the City Council proclaimed that a projected water shortage exists in Pasadena and implemented Water Shortage Plan I, in accordance with Pasadena Municipal Code (PMC) 13.10.040.
Water Shortage Plan I directs all persons in Pasadena and all customers of PWP to adhere to nine water conservation measures. Adherence to these measures is voluntary, but critical for achieving water savings that may help prevent an actual shortage in the city.
PWP urges everyone to adopt lifelong efficient water use habits, for the good of the city and for the good of the environment.
