Within the Water Quality Department you can view the Consumer Confidence Report and the Santa Clarita Valley Water Report.


Santa Clarita Valley Customer Confidence Report


This Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is provided by the Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA) and local water purveyors. Our goal is to provide our customers the most up-to-date information about your water. The 2016 CCR contains a summary of thousands of water quality tests performed in the Santa Clarita Valley.


Lead and Copper Testing Information


In 1991, The EPA published a regulation to control lead (Pb) and copper (Cu) in drinking water. This regulation is known as the Lead and Copper Rule. This requires NCWD to perform Pb and Cu sampling on a triennial basis and publish the results in the annual Consumer Confidence Report which is posted above. Due to enhanced public interest in drinking water quality, NCWD is providing an informational fact sheet with the latest Pb and Cu results, a locational sampling map, and links to additional resources. Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns about any of the results or maps.

Santa Clarita Valley Water Report


This annual report, which began to describe water supply conditions in 1998, provides current information about the water requirements and water supplies of the Santa  Clarita Valley. The report was prepared for the imported water wholesaler, Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA), and for the four local retail water Purveyors that serve the Valley: CLWA, Santa Clarita Water Division, Los Angeles County Waterworks District 36, Newhall County Water District, and Valencia Water Company. These entities and representatives from the City of Santa Clarita and the County of Los Angeles Department of Regional Planning meet as required to coordinate the management of imported water with local groundwater, now augmented by recycled water, to meet water requirements in the Valley…

Water Resources Reconnaissance Study (April 2015)


This study has been designed to provide CLWA and the local retailers with a planning basis from which to move forward with one or more near-term water supply augmentation strategies (i.e., can be implemented within 10 years) to provide between 5,000 afy and 15,000 afy of supply to the Valley during droughts. The purpose of water supply augmentation is to enhance the reliability of the Valley’s water supplies by conducting projects that store and/or reuse water on a long-term basis and thereby provide an increased amount of local water supply that CLWA and the local retailers can draw from during periods when SWP water supplies are significantly curtailed.
