Where does our water come from?

The City of Poway imports nearly all of its water from Northern California and the Colorado River. The City purchases this water from the San Diego County Water Authority and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. About 5% of Poway’s water supply is recycled water purchased from the City of San Diego for irrigation in the Business Park.
