Press Releases

Water Agency (DWA) has refreshed its advertising campaign to encourage
customers to ‘Check Yourself, Check Your Water Use.’ When Governor Jerry
Brown declared a drought emergency in January of 2014, he called on all
Californians to cut back their water use by 20%. The campaign aimed at helping 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%?”
The State Water Resources Control Board today released a report detailing data on urban water suppliers’ water production during January 2015. As part of the State Water Board’s emergency regulations for conservation that were enacted in July 2014, urban water suppliers are required to submit monthly water use reports. The State Water Board’s report showed that DWA achieved an approximate 11 percent reduction in water production during January 2015 compared to January 2013, which was slightly above the statewide average of approximately 9 percent.

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.
