The 420 square mile service area uses about 250,000
acre-feet of groundwater per year taken from the
aquifers of the Central Coast and West Coast Basins.
This equates to nearly 40% of the total demand for water.
WRD is involved in groundwater monitoring, safe drinking
water programs, combating seawater intrusion and
groundwater replenishment operations throughout
Southern Los Angeles County.

The Water Independence Now (WIN) program is a series of projects that will fully utilize stormwater and recycled water sources to restore and protect the groundwater resources of the Central and West Coast Basins. In the past, a large percentage of replenishment water came from sources in Northern California and the Colorado River.
WIN seeks to completely eliminate this dependence on imported water to ensure the future security of our region by developing local resources to create a locally sustainable groundwater supply.. >>
