Information on the L.A. County Safe Clean Water Program (Measure W)

 The passage of Measure W in 2018 created L.A. County’s Safe Clean Water Program.  The Safe Clean Water Program’s goals include improving and protecting water quality; capturing rain and stormwater to increase safe drinking water supplies and preparing for future droughts; and protecting public health and marine life by reducing pollution, trash, toxins and plastics entering Los Angeles County waterways, bays and beaches.

Beginning in late 2019, the program will generate about $300 million through a special parcel tax of 2.5 cents per square foot for impermeable surface area (about $83 a year for the average County household). This includes paved and developed areas where rainfall cannot be absorbed into the ground and instead runs off as stormwater in the L.A. County Flood Control District.
