Request to Consider Fire Safety Aspects of Drought Restrictions

Posted on 08/03/2022

The Board has requested the Mayor to form a Blue Ribbon Panel to evaluate the impacts on fire risk of drought watering restrictions in Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones.  The Board asked that the Blue Ribbon Panel  would include not only the DWP, but also the LAFD, LAPD, Planning, and environmental horticulture specialists available to the City and consider input from representatives of the insurance industry that provide coverage within the City limits. This panel would consider the appropriate balance of water use for ornamental vegetation, especially trees, in hillside residential areas relative to the hazard posed by dead and drying vegetation during extreme fire weather and during any fire event.
