LADWP's newly released budget proposes to dramatically slash investment in essential environmental initiatives including energy efficiency, water conservation and stormwater capture. LADWP will present their budget categorized into two types of costs: basic business needs (minimum to meet regulatory mandates and basic operations) and “strategic investments.” “Strategic investments” include a higher percentage of support for such programs as: water conservation, energy efficiency, water reuse, groundwater recharge, water recycling, smart meters and stormwater capture. Both “basic costs” and “strategic investments” are critical to ensure water sustainability. Visit www.ladwp.com/laforward to learn more about the 2011 Rates Process and to RSVP.

The proposed Los Angeles Low Impact Development (LID) Ordinance is scheduled to be heard at the December 7, 2010 meeting of the City Council's Energy and Environment Committee.

We hope you're able to attend this meeting to show your support so that the Ordinance can move forward in the approval process! Important - please arrive by 9am. Although the LID Ordinance is fourth on the meeting agenda, it may be considered first and the other items will not take much time.
