Who's cracking down on water waste in O.C.? No one, really, as most everyone is conserving — but suffice to say that the far northern reaches of Orange County may harbor more busybodies than the south. Don't let your hose leak in La Habra. The city clocked more than 1,600 reported 'water waste incidents' in 2022 — approaching three times as many as much larger Anaheim (655) and Santa Ana (624), according to state data. We'll note that La Habra is about as big as Newport Beach (which had just 141 water waste reports), and Fountain Valley (45), and Tustin (72).
