Value of Western water
Since our region does not have many natural local sources of water, most of your water has traveled through hundreds of miles of open aqueducts and pipelines from the Sierra Nevada mountain snowpack in northern California to your home. This is a long, energy-intensive and expensive trip.
Western continues to make investments in infrastructure and local partnerships to increase local water supplies and decrease our reliance on more costly imported water. We are working 24/7/365 to make sure you receive the highest quality water, on-demand when you need it.
Western has been investing in the region’s water infrastructure to help secure additional local water supplies and reduce the region’s reliance on water from northern California. Learn more about how Western is investing customer dollars to secure water supply reliability.
