The City of Los Angeles is once again offering recycled water to all LADWP customers. Customers may fill up with recycled water for approved purposes, free of charge. Just bring your water containers with water-tight lids to one of the City’s Residential Recycled Water Fill Station (RWFS).
Operating dates for 2023 are to be determined. Please check back for updates.
Recycled water helps promote conservation by offsetting demand for precious drinking water. Customers may use recycled water only for landscaping purposes, such as maintaining trees, shrubs, gardens, and lawns, and to water edible fruits, vegetables, and herbs. All edible items must be washed with drinking water before consumption.
To be eligible to receive free recycled water at the fill station, customers must complete a brief training class before filling up. Upon completion, participants can receive up to 300 gallons of disinfected tertiary recycled water per visit.
In order to qualify for the Residential RWFS, participants must:
Be an LADWP customer. Customers must bring their LADWP bill and a government issued ID to the Recycled Water Fill Station training for verification.
Take the Recycled Water Fill Station training provided by the LADWP.
Training is free and will be conducted on-site at the fill station.
Submit a signed Recycled Water User Application and Agreement Form.
Place the LADWP-provided “Do Not Drink” purple stickers on ALL containers used for transporting recycled water.
Bring your own water-tight lid containers to the fill station. All containers will be checked for proper labeling. You must carry and maneuver your containers; LADWP personnel will not help load or carry any containers.
Recycled Water Containers
Bring your own water-tight lid container(s) to the fill station. For container suggestions, see the List of Water-Tight Lid Containers document. Tie-down straps to secure the containers are recommended for your safety. For a limited time, LADWP will give away a limited number of two-gallon containers to customers picking up recycled water, while supplies last.
Participants will be allowed to pick up a maximum of 300 gallons of recycled water, free of charge, per visit. Plan accordingly when determining how much water to pick up and keep in mind the size of your vehicle when selecting transport containers. Ensure your vehicle can handle the amount and weight of recycled water you collect and transport. Driving a vehicle with heavy, sloshing liquid decreases vehicle stability and requires longer stopping distance.
The AC Optimization Program provides eligible residential and commercial LADWP customers services by certified, professional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) technicians from approved, licensed contractors to analyze cooling systems and provide basic maintenance and efficiency services.
This webpage will guide you in obtaining and tracking your energy and water consumption, using the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager®. This will help you comply with the City of Los Angeles’ Existing Building Energy and Water Efficiency Ordinance (EBEWE), which became effective January 1, 2017. It also serves to comply with State Legislation that requires statewide building energy use benchmarking.
The BPBC Program offers eligible businesses, that are new to the LADWP service territory, monthly bill credits on electricity charges for the first three years of operation, offered on a first come, first served basis.
