Quality Water Standards
In the early 1990s, Southern California faced a severe drought that not only impacted our water supplies, but also the way we manage water reliability. West Basin has made enormous strides in increasing locally produced water through investments in conservation, education and recycled water.
West Basin takes seriously our responsibility to provide safe, high quality water to our customers. Our water quality is better than required by state and federal drinking water standards.
Through West Basin’s Water for Tomorrow Program, the District is taking steps towards providing more reliable, drought-resilient supplies through its programs.
