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.
The District pumps all of its water from the underground aquifer known as the Central Basin, which is an adjudicated water basin. The distribution system includes five wells providing water at a rate of 700 to 2800 gallons per minute and one 1.25-million-gallon reservoir. The District meters all water it delivers and provides water to residential, commercial, industrial and governmental entities.
In 2008 the District’s presiding Board of Directors approved a Water Master Plan to identify areas in need of improvement and help management make strategic decisions that would improve upon the reliability and efficiency of the District.
