Press Releases

DWA is proud to announce that the Agency’s customers have access to water that meets and beats the strictest water quality standards in the nation. As drought conditions in California continue, the use of water in our daily lives has changed. DWA has made it a priority to partner with customers on conservation, while continuing to provide healthy, safe drinking water for all. Proof of the Agency’s continuing efforts to deliver safe, reliable water is demonstrated in the Agency’s 2014 Water Quality Report released today.
Desert Water Agency (DWA) announced yesterday that the Agency’s Board of Directors adopted Ordinance 63 and approved the budget for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. Ordinance 63 will streamline the Agency’s water conservation efforts and allow DWA to enforce the mandatory water use restrictions in place, helping the Agency achieve the conservation requirements outlined by Governor Brown and the State Water Resources Control Board.

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.
