message from the clwa general manager
As the new general manager of Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA), I look forward to working with the Board of Directors, staff and the community to ensure a reliable water supply at a reasonable cost. CLWA has served the community well with its record of fiscal responsibility and operational efficiency along with long-term water resources planning.We seek partnerships with community through such measures as our conservation programs that include turf grass removal for residents, businesses and schools as well as a robust education program for K-12 students and adults, including daytime and evening classes.
After several years of drought, I know we expect a wet winter, but it will take more than one rainy year to end the drought. We will need multiple years of above average rainfall in Southern California and snow in the Sierras to come close to ending the drought.
I urge you to join us in using water more efficiently.
– Matt Stone
What is CLWA?
The Castaic Lake Water Agency is a public water wholesaler that provides about half of the water that Santa Clarita households and businesses use. CLWA supplements local groundwater supplies with State Water Project water from northern California and other sources of imported water. CLWA also provides recycled water.
CLWA’s water is treated and delivered to the valley’s four local water purveyors. You pay your water bill to one of them: Los Angeles County Waterworks District #36, Newhall County Water District, CLWA Santa Clarita Water Division, and Valencia Water Company.
The mission of CLWA is to provide reliable, quality water at a reasonable cost to the Santa Clarita Valley.
