Potable Water Reliability Enhancement Project


A partnership between

Rowland Water District and Cal Domestic Water Company


In order to provide enhanced reliability for RWD customers with the use of local supplies, RWD is installing a 3-mile, 24-inch potable water main along Harbor Boulevard, between Pathfinder Road and Whittier Boulevard,  which will bring a new source of water into the RWD service area.


The working hours will be between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and the project will take approximately 6 to 8 months to complete.


Seven Teachers Awarded Grants

Seven teachers from within the District's service area received grants in the amount of $750 each to complete
water-related classroom projects. Congratulations Joshua Whittemore, Jennifer Chen and Daisy Panichella from Telesis Academy of Science and Math, Yvette Kraus, Vicki Schaffer and Sherrie Walton from Blandford Elementary School and Michelle Willile from Jellick Elementary School.
How is Rowland Water Responding to the Drought?
  • Severe conditions across the state have resulted in reservoirs at 63% capacity, and snowpack in our mountains is only at 20% of the average level. 
  • Forward thinking and long term planning have enabled Rowland Water to increase storage and diversify water sources, meaning we can continue to meet the current and future needs of our customers even during these dry conditions. 
  • Customers are being asked to take part in our conservation efforts and voluntarily cut water waste as much as possible, especially outdoors where most of the water is used.
  • As an agency that relies heavily on imported water, we must be ready to respond to future calls for mandatory restrictions from Three Valleys Municipal Water District and Metropolitan Water District if the drought continues.
  • Rowland Water can assure all customers that we have the appropriate supplies to meet the daily and future needs of our customers.
