The New Temescal Valley Water District
New Name. Same Great Water.
Nestled in the foothills of the Cleveland National Forest is Temescal Valley Water District, the local purveyor of potable and reclaimed water for residents within the Temescal Valley area. TVWD also provides wastewater collection, treatment and disposal for the Temescal Valley residents, including the Butterfield Estates and California Meadows communities.
Temescal Valley Water District obtains its water from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, who imports it from Northern California. The water is then treated at the Henry J. Mills Water Filtration Plant in Riverside, CA. This water is commonly called “State Project Water” and is one of the highest quality sources of water in the State.
Since it was originally formed as the Lee Lake Water District in 1965, many changes have taken place in the Temescal Valley and in the Water District itself. What was once land farmed for citrus crops is now home to numerous residential communities, businesses and industrial parks. However, the one constant over this period of time has been the local Water District and its commitment to provide personal, reliable and efficient service to its customers.

Update on water color
July 22, 2015 12:00:00 PM
On Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at approximately 10:30 am we were notified by our water supplier Western Municipal Water District that a power failure occurred at Reach F (our takeout structure, controlled by Western). This power failure caused the valve that feeds our system to open wide and push high velocity water into our large diameter pipeline. This increased velocity pushed sediments into the system that were lying on the bottom of the pipelines. It is normal for pipelines to have sediments and once we were informed we flushed hydrants throughout the District to get as much of the sediment out of the lines as possible. At no time was the water unsafe to drink.
The Drought Continues
After four consecutive years of drought, Governor Brown issued an Executive Order April 1, 2015, to address this serious situation, implementing a new water saving mandate of a 25 percent reduction in urban water usage statewide.
