Local and state public health officials are closely monitoring the global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. There have been a number of cases reported in California and Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in early March 2020. 

The coronavirus outbreak will not impact your water safety or delivery. There is no evidence that coronavirus transfers through drinking water. It transfers from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Pico Water District remains committed to its mission of providing safe, reliable water. We follow all state and federal regulations and testing that keep your tap water safe to drink.

With the health of our employees and community in mind, Pico Water District is taking the following precautions:

  • Encouraging the public to pay bills online or via phone (562) 692-3756 and call with questions instead of visiting the office
  • Keeping hand sanitizer available in our lobby
  • Regularly cleaning all public surfaces, including customer service counters
  • Training staff on proper prevention tips
  • Readying emergency protocols to ensure continued service

Pico Water District also recommends the following steps regarding attending a public meeting: 

  • Keep at least 6 feet between yourself and other meeting attendees
  • Consider reading the meeting minutes on our website
  • Instead of attending the meeting in person, members of the public may email written comments to the General Manager at msgrajeda@picowaterdistrict.net not later than 3 p.m. on the day of the meeting to pass along to the Board. This email should include the full name of the person filing the comment, a contact phone number, the subject matter of the comment, and the comment to be filed as part of the official record

We will continue to monitor the situation and provides updates as necessary. Ongoing local outbreak updates are available from the County of Los Angeles at http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus.

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.
