SoCal Plans to Reduce Imported Water Supplies by 2035

Colorado River water from Lake Mead makes its way to Southern California through the California River Aqueduct.

Once this water arrives in Lake Mathews, it’s then distributed to a water treatment plant owned by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.

Currently, most of the water in Metropolitan’s water treatment facilities are from Northern California from the State Water Project because of our wet winter.
