Seeking Fair Water Loss Standards for California

The Water Authority’s Water Resources Department joined several member agencies and other stakeholders to help shape the water loss performance standards under Senate Bill 555, legislation from 2015 that required all retail water agencies to submit annual validated water loss studies and the State Water Resources Control Board to adopt water loss performance standards by July 1, 2020. Water Authority and member agency representatives aimed to develop performance measures that are fair, implementable, and have a return on investment by both small and large retail water agencies. Performance measures and a compliance schedule are expected to be adopted by 2020.
