Water Supply:

Rowland Water District is supplied entirely by imported water from the State Water Project and the Colorado River Aqueduct, through its wholesaler, Three Valley Municipal Water District.
Colorado River water is delivered from Lake Havasu by means of a 242-mile long aqueduct. The water originates as snowmelt from the mountainous regions in Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado.
State Project water starts in Northern California and is delivered via the 441-mile California Aqueduct, through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
The District receives a blend of these waters from two treatment plants: Weymouth Filtration Plant in La Verne and the Three Valleys Municipal Water District Miramar Plant in Claremont.
Rowland Water District delivers to its customers an average of 18 million gallons of water a day in summer and 10 million gallons of water a day in winter.

Recycled Water:

Rowland Water District has reduced its imported water dependence by expanding and operating its recycled water system for irrigation, construction, cooling towers and industrial processes.
The District’s reputation as a leader in recycled water use led to a contractual agreement with the City of Industry to operate and maintain its recycled water system, which provides recycled water to the Pacific Palms Resort and two PGA-accredited golf courses.
Recycled water is completely isolated from all existing potable water and sewer systems and is delivered to customers through specially marked purple pipes. Businesses that are actively conserving water by utilizing recycled water for irrigation must post signs indicating its use.
With support from its publicly elected Board of Directors, Rowland Water District has successfully diversified its water supply portfolio by developing a recycled water system master plan and hydraulic model and committing to a long-term investment strategy by expanding the recycled water distribution system. A fully expanded system will shift nearly one-third of the District’s total supply to recycled water.
This benefits customers by reducing the amount of costly imported water supplies. Other advantages of recycled water: it is drought-proof and not subject to rationing or shutoff; it can reduce the need for chemical fertilizers when used for irrigation; it preserves California’s vital fresh water supply.
