DWP's Water Conservation Plan Causes Pipes to Burst

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power said today that February saw the lowest use of water in 31 years. At the same time, a blue ribbon panel of scientists said that last year's disruptive breaks in water mains were caused, in part, by the agency's water conservation policies. Jean Pierre Bardet, Chair of USC's Department of Civic and Environmental Engineering, headed the panel, which was appointed by Mayor Villaraigosa.
