The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has informed the City of Monrovia that multiple 
plant samples from residential citrus trees in Monrovia recently tested positive for Huanglongbing (HLB).
The disease is deadly for citrus trees and there is no cure, so CDFA will be taking action quickly to limit its 
spread. You can expect CDFA staff to survey for HLB and treat any host plants within a 250-meter area around 
the new detections. Agriculture crews will be inspecting citrus and other host plants to look for symptoms of 
HLB and may take plant samples or samples of any Asian citrus psyl-lids found, as these insects are responsible 
for spreading the disease as they feed from tree to tree. 

When harvesting and donating your own citrus fruit, follow these best practices to ensure the dead-ly citrus tree 
disease, Huanglongbing (HLB), does not destroy our beloved citrus trees. HLB is spread by a tiny insect called 
the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), as it feeds on citrus tree leaves, and has no cure. The best way to protect our citrus 
trees from HLB is to prevent the movement of ACP. When harvesting fruit to donate, be sure to: 

• Remove all leaves, stems and branches before citrus is moved from the property. 
• Wash fruit thoroughly before moving the fruit. 
• Fully open bags carrying your citrus, dump and shake them out, and remove any stems, leaves, or other 
debris before leaving the property. 
• Inspect clothes, personal items, and vehicles for plant materials and brush them off before leaving the 

Excess water usage penalties went into effect starting the first billing cycle in March 2022. The City has been 
expanding educational outreach for many months to ensure all Monrovians are aware of Phase II of the Water 
Conservation Plan and what that means for your water consumption and your water bill. 

As a recap, Phase II of the Water Conservation Plan stipulates a 10% mandatory reduction in water consumption 
from each households same month billing period in 2020. For example, the first billing period in March will 
compare your usage from February of 2022 to your usage in February of 2020.
