Clean Water Measure Protests Accepted Via Email Until March 12

Property owners who wish to oppose a fee proposed to clean up county waterways can send their protests in via email by mid March.

The Los Angeles County Flood Control District announced today that it is accepting protests by email from property owners who wish to oppose a fee proposed to clean up county waterways.

The proposed Clean Water, Clean Beaches Measure would raise $295 million annually for cities and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County to clean up the region's rivers, lakes and beaches, protect public health and safeguard local sources of drinking water. It would do so by imposing a fee for storm water runoff on owners of residential and commercial properties in the county.

More than 50  percent of property owners would need to protest the measure to keep it off the ballot.

The Board of Supervisors has extended the protest period to March 12.

Protests must be received by then and must include:

  • the parcel's address;
  • the assessor's parcel number;
  • the name of the parcel owner; and
  • the signature of the parcel owner or an authorized representative.

Owners may use a protest form provided at lacountycleanwater.org or submit a letter and email it to WQFI.Info@dpw.lacounty.gov. Only scanned or photographed email protests with a handwritten signature will be accepted

Protests can also be sent by mail to the Executive Officer of the Board of Supervisors at Post Office Box 866006, Los Angeles, CA 90086 or hand- delivered to the third floor of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration at 500 W. Temple St.

There is no need to resubmit protests already mailed or otherwise delivered. Only one protest will be counted for each parcel.
