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.
