Sources of Water Supply

The Los Angeles Aqueducts, local groundwater, and supplemental water purchased from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) are the primary sources of water supply for the City of Los Angeles (City). The water from MWD is delivered through the Colorado River Aqueduct and the State Water Project’s California Aqueduct. These three sources have historically delivered an adequate and reliable supply to serve the City’s needs.

Implementation of recycled water projects is progressing and is expected to fill a larger role in Los Angeles’ water supply portfolio. Stormwater capture projects for groundwater recharge to improve groundwater reliability are also being developed. Despite the declining water supply due to environmental enhancements and impacts from climate change, LADWP remains committed to creating sustainable sources of water to meet the future needs of Los Angeles.
