Water & Wastewater

Water & Wastewater Projects

In April 2015, the State mandated statewide reductions in municipal water consumption through a number of measures, one of which was to update the State Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO) and require all municipalities to either adopt it by reference or craft their own more restrictive ordinances by December 31, 2015. The Planning Department is currently working on an ordinance to adopt the MWELO by reference to comply with State legislation and ensure that all new development in Moraga adheres to the water conservation requirements of the MWELO. The provisions of the MWELO address both Strategies WW.3 and WW.4 of the Water and Wastewater Section of the Climate Action Plan (CAP).
