What We DoSan Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District (Valley District) was formed in 1954 as a regional agency to plan a long-range water supply for the San Bernardino Valley. It imports water into its service area through participation in the State Water Project (SWP) and manages groundwater storage within its boundaries. It was incorporated under the Municipal Water District Act of 1911 (California Water Code Section 71000 et seq., as amended). Its enabling act includes a broad range of powers to provide water, as well as wastewater and storm water disposal, recreation, and fire protection services. Valley District does not deliver water directly to retail water customers. Read further about What We Do.
