Due to the historic drought and current watering restrictions, medians that irrigate with potable water have vegetation that has become stressed due to heat and lowered watering levels. The City of Westlake Village is planning to supplement the watering of these medians with trucked-in recycled water. Both First Neighborhood and Lakeshore will see watering trucks and landscapers who will hand water the vegetation with recycled water.
Almost all of the medians in First Neighborhood are watered with potable water. Due to the one-day-per-week outdoor watering restrictions and summer heat, the vegetation in these medians are stressed and some of the turf is turning brown. The City will begin to truck in recycled water to supplement the trees and plants during current watering conditions. Residents in the neighborhood will begin to see trucks servicing these locations over a two day period each week. The entrances at Knightsgate and Middlegate will have the plants, trees, and turf watered to beautify the entrances of the community. City Staff is partnering with the First Neighborhood HOA to explore converting the existing landscaping to drought tolerant landscaping in the near future.
All of the medians in Lakeshore are watered with potable water. Due to the one-day-per-week outdoor watering restrictions and summer heat, some of the vegetation has become stressed. Residents in Lakeshore will begin to see trucks servicing these locations for a few hours each week. These medians do not have turf and most have drought tolerant landscaping already.
