What is the Santa Clarita Water Division?
The Santa Clarita Water Division(SCWD) is the second largest water retailer in the Santa Clarita Valley. A leader in customer service, SCWD operates a service area of approximately 32 square miles in northern Los Angeles County that includes a portion of the City of Santa Clarita and unincorporated County areas in the communities of Saugus, Canyon Country and Newhall. Water is supplied from both groundwater and Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA) import water to over 28,000 service connections.
A proud innovator in the constantly changing world of water supply, SCWD operates and maintains a reliable and technologically advanced infrastructure of approximately 300 miles of existing pipeline, 48 water tanks containing nearly 74 million gallons of storage capacity, 29 pump stations and 15 groundwater production wells. We encourage our customers to do their part to ensure a reliable water resource by conserving water throughout their homes and workplace throughout the year.
The history of SCWD dates back to 1973, when the Santa Clarita Water Company was formed as the result of the merger between the Bouquet Water Company and Solemint Water Company. In 1999, CLWA acquired the stock of the Company, and created SCWD to provide retail water service as a public agency.
The mission of the Santa Clarita Water Division is to provide
reliable, quality water at a reasonable cost to our customers.
