Infrastructure

Palmdale Water District produces an average of 6.83 billion gallons of clean, healthy water each year using more than 400 miles of pipe, 24 wells, 20 tanks, 2 reservoirs, and a state of the art treatment plant.

  • Palmdale Lake holds about one fifth of the total water that customers use each year.
  • When needed, the district is entitled to take up to 5.6 billion gallons of water each year from the California Aqueduct
  • Littlerock Dam reservoir is fed entirely by natural run-off from snow packs and rainfall.Pipe age
  • Well water pumped from as deep as 550 feet makes up approximately 40% of the Districts annual production
  • The Leslie O. Carter Water Treatment Plant can treat up to 35 million gallons of water per day.
  • Recent upgrades enable the Palmdale Water District to remove a wide range of naturally occurring and man-made contaminants from the water

Unfortunately, the infrastructure used to treat and deliver water has a finite life span. Regular maintenance and frequent replacement is needed to avoid leaks, contamination and breaks. Since 2010 Palmdale Water District has invested more than $11 million in asset and inventory replacement along.

To fund the repair and replacement of infrastructure as it ages, Palmdale Water District has proposed a  rate increase set to take effect in 2015.
