Water Quality

SCWD is committed to maintaining a high level of water quality and safety for valley customers. SCWD’s water sources are composed of 13 groundwater wells and purchased treated surface water from the Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA).

Our water quality technicians collect water samples continuously on a weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually basis to analyze for potential contaminants such as bacteria, inorganics, organics, metals, disinfection byproducts and radioactive materials, as well as inspect the system-wide disinfectant residuals, general physical characteristics of the water and aesthetic parameters including taste, odor and color.

SCWD is always working to protect and improve our water resources and use innovative approaches for the management of water operations and water resources. We strive to effectively integrate drinking water source protection, treatment and distribution in order to protect public health and the environment. SCWD mails a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) to every customer each year. This report details the quality of your drinking water and shows the minimum,maximum and typical levels of contaminants and how our water meets or exceeds federal and state drinking water standards.
