The Landscape Advisory Committee (LAC) is a partnership between EBMUD and members of the landscape industry to promote sustainable landscape design, installation, maintenance and management practices. 

This committee seeks to support the transition to more drought-resilient landscaping and water supplies.

Who we are 

The LAC brings together professionals from the green industry, including designers, contractors, nursery managers, sod producers, educators, manufacturers, distributors and property managers.

What we do

Our goals are to: 

Identify principles and improve practices for managing limited water resources.
Partner with EBMUD Water Conservation staff to create and develop effective programs and incentives related to sustainable landscaping.
