Press Releases

DWA today launched an advertising campaign encouraging customers to ‘Check Yourself, Check Your Water Use.’ When Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency earlier this year, he called on all Californians to cut back their water use by 20%. The campaign aims to help the community achieve this 20% reduction in water use by providing residents and visitors with helpful water-saving tips and holding them accountable for that reduction by asking, “What’s Your 20%?”
Desert Water Agency (DWA) Board of Directors today adopted a resolution formalizing the Agency’s long-time commitment to sustainably managing the region’s groundwater basin and calling on all customers to voluntarily reduce water use by 20% to aid in the effort. Sustainable groundwater management requires a balanced approach to replenishment and withdraws and during the ongoing drought the Agency is minimizing the need to withdraw water by calling on all customers to reduce water use.

To our valued customers

Thank you for visiting Desert Water Agency’s website where you will find useful information on your service and your local water supply.

Desert Water Agency is the water utility for the Palm Springs area including outlying county areas, Desert Hot Springs, part of Cathedral City and Palm Springs.

It is our responsibility to provide a safe, reliable water supply to the area we serve while protecting our interests in the State Water Project.

Water has been garnering great attention lately due to a statewide drought, legislative action and the media.  We, at DWA, hope that this attention will highlight the importance of our water supplies and water infrastructure.

At DWA, we hope to encourage conservation by example. We promote native landscaping through various demonstration gardens in our service area.  We have been recycling water since 1988 for irrigation use—saving us millions of gallons of potable groundwater each year.  We also have a football-field sized solar field where we help generate energy to offset our use.  You can learn more about each of these things by clicking on “Conservation.”

The board and staff of DWA take pride in providing our customers high quality water.  Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about us so we may better serve you.
