Water Retailers

The Santa Clara Valley Water District, as a countywide wholesale water and groundwater management agency, relies on local retailers (municipalities and private companies) to deliver water to homes and businesses throughout the county. These retailers enact and implement local water use ordinances. Residents and businesses can expect, over the coming weeks, for their local water provider to begin implementing measures to reach the regional 20 percent water use reduction target.  

We hope you find the following charts useful in determining the sources of your water. Just click on the city you live in and go from there.
