The City has partnered with Los Angeles County Waterworks and West Basin Municipal Water District to help local residents save water and money through a comprehensive water conservation program. The goal of the Malibu Smart program is to save 28 million gallons of water annually in Malibu and Topanga Canyon through the installation of water-efficiency measures.

One Water Malibu
The One Water Malibu campaign aimed at getting the entire Malibu community actively involved in saving water and making water conservation a permanent lifestyle rather than a temporary response to the historic California drought. The campaign produced four videos, logos, a Sustainable Garden Gallery, and a water conservation festival that took place in June 2016.
Water Bottle Filling Stations at City Hall
The City of Malibu and West Basin Municipal Water District partnered to install two new sustainable water bottle filling stations at Malibu City Hall and provide all City staff with reusable water containers to reduce single-use plastic water bottles. The City encourages citizens to reduce the use of single-use water bottles and make the switch to reusable goods.
Water Policies & Plans
The City has had strict water conservation regulations in place since 1991. In June 2015, the City modified its existing restrictions for outdoor water use.
