Pico Water District
Providing its service area with the highest quality and reliable supplies of water at the lowest possible rate
Pico Water District provides water service to its customers through the use of six wells ranging in water production from 600 gallons per minute to 1800 gallons per minute, and one 1.25 million gallon reservoir. The District pumps all of its water from the underground aquifer known as the Central Basin, which is an adjudicated water basin. The District meters all of the water it delivers and provides water to residential, commercial, industrial and governmental entities.
In 2008 the District’s presiding Board of Directors approved a new Water Master Plan to be performed on the District to point out areas in need of improvement and help management make strategic decisions that would improve upon the reliability and efficiency of the District.
As a water retailer, the mission of Pico Water District is to provide its service area with the highest quality and reliable supplies of water at the lowest possible rate. Provide the best service; manage its infrastructure to meet present and future needs. Strive to minimize economic impact to its water customers.
