Action: Coordinate water quality improvements with the Safe, Clean Water Program.

The Safe, Clean Water Program continues LA County’s tradition of protecting water quality within communities and providing new sources of water for current and future generations.

Modernizing the 100-year-old water system can better protect public health and the environment, and maximize a cleaner, locally controlled water supply. Starting in 2020, the Safe, Clean Water Program will provide up to $285 million annually for a broad range of water quality projects in LA County.
