CVWD taps into numerous resources to bring water to the Cucamonga Valley. The two main sources include ground water and imported water.
CVWD operates 20 wells across the Chino Groundwater Basin and the Cucamonga Basin. This provides nearly half the water needed to serve CVWD customers. A small portion of the water supply comes from local canyons and tunnels. This consists of snow melt and rainwater that flow from the foothills. The remaining water is imported from Northern California through the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
This water is then treated and stored in one of 34 reservoirs maintained by the district. It then is distributed through hundreds of miles of pipes to provide clean, safe water to nearly 190,000 customers in the CVWD service area.
CVWD is much more than just a service provider. The district is a part of the community, hosting events such as the annual Earth Day & Open House. More than just a chance to learn about water, people enjoyed music, food, games, dance performances and even document shredding. CVWD hosts landscape workshops throughout the year, along with an annual Water Savvy Garden Tour so people can see how their neighbors turned those ideas into reality to create beautiful, water-friendly yards. The district also offers local schools educational programs and materials, so kids can learn about water conservation from the teachers they trust.
