It would be difficult to imagine our daily lives without the convenience of a reliable water system delivering high-quality water.  Providing safe water to over 107,000 customers is a priority of Jurupa Community Services District (JCSD).  Before any water reaches your home or business it goes through a complex process with the help of multi-million dollar equipment and a highly-trained professional team.

As with all natural water, untreated water contains varying levels of natural and manmade contaminants.  With the help of wells, pumps and pipes located throughout JCSD’s service area, water makes its way toone of our various facilities in order to treat, produce, and deliver water to our customers.

Where Your Water Comes From

Where does your tap water come from?  Groundwater is served by 100%groundwater sources. JCSD remains dedicated to continue its reliance on 100% local water (groundwater) for its service area.  Groundwater lies in an underground water-bearing soil called an aquifer and originates from rain, snow, and irrigation system return flows.
