The San Diego County Water Authority is a public agency serving the San Diego region as a wholesale supplier of water from the Colorado River and Northern California. The Water Authority works through its 24 member agencies to provide a safe, reliable water supply to support the region. SDCWA.org
Over the past two decades, the Water Authority – in partnership with the community – has diversified the region’s water supply sources. We no longer rely on a single supplier for 95 percent of our water, a strategy that is helping reduce the impact of the current statewide drought on our community.
