Our Water Supply
Liberty Utilities obtains its water supply from three sources: imported water, groundwater, and recycled water. Liberty Utilities potable imported and recycled water supplies are purchased from the Central Basin Municipal Water District, a member agency of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. The potable imported water is a mix of water that originates in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Colorado River Basin.
Liberty Utilities recycled water supply originates from local tertiary treated municipal wastewater that is virtually colorless and odorless. Although this water source is not allowable for direct human consumption, it remains an economical choice for all non-potable uses including landscaping and manufacturing.
Liberty Utilities groundwater supply is pumped from the adjudicated Central Groundwater Basin which is protected and managed by the Water Replenishment District of Southern California.
Liberty Utilities must comply with the California Water Management Planning Act of 1983. This act requires the development of an Urban Water Management Plan (Plan) every 5 years. This Plan must prove that there is a reliable source of water for a utility’s customers during normal, single dry, or multiple dry years. Here is a copy of Liberty Utilities 2015 plan. Upon review, you’ll find that Liberty Utilities expects to meet all of its water demands over the next 25 years.
