City of Corona

The Department of Water and Power has served the City since 1886, and their mission is to protect public health by providing the highest quality water, reclaimed water and electric service, as well as efficient water reclamation.

Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District

EVMWD, a public non-profit agency, was created on December 23, 1950 under the Municipal Water District Act of 1911. As a special district, EVMWD’s powers include provision of public water service, water supply development and planning, wastewater treatment and disposal, and recycling. Currently, the district has over 42,000 water, wastewater and agricultural service connections.

The Elsinore Valley exists today because of water. Located in a desert region, early settlers made do with scarce local water resources. Life was hard. Today, the Valley is thriving. It supports a $287 million local economy and an enviable quality of life – all supported by water. From their formation in 1950, the Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District has worked to harness local water resources and provide their customers with a safe, affordable water supply.

Temescal Valley Water District

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.

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.
