Small water systems in Los Angeles County often struggle to provide their customers with clean drinking water at an affordable rate due to groundwater contamination, financial management problems and other issues.

Justin Blakely - Homegrown Leadership fighting for lower water rates

The Water Replenishment District of Southern California (WRD) is the largest groundwater agency in the State of California, managing and protecting local groundwater resources for over four million residents.

WRD ensures that a reliable supply of high quality groundwater is available through the use of recycled water and stormwater capture. WRD is responsible for monitoring and testing groundwater throughout the region using effective management principles.

Cities within Division 5 include: Bellflower, Carson, Compton, Downey, La Habra Heights, Norwalk, Paramount, Pico Rivera, Santa Fe Springs and Whittier.

An advocate for innovative water conservation systems, Justin is the Founder and President of Blakely Water Consultancy, a company dedicated to educating Californians on water conservation, water-efficient appliances and water-saving home irrigation systems.

Mr. Blakely is a success story straight out of Compton; he graduated with honors from the California State University, Dominguez Hills.

As a water board member, Justin Blakely will work to:

  • End our dependence on expensive imported water and recycle our water for industrial use
  • Implement water conservation educational programs in our schools
  • Eliminate waste and mismanagement at the water board
