Water infrastructure is vital to the prosperity of residents and businesses of Padre Dam Municipal Water District. What is water infrastructure? From the pipelines that carry water supplies throughout the county to water treatment plants that ensure the safety of the water that flows from our taps to the East County Advanced Water Purification Project that will provide East County with up to 30% of its drinking water beginning in 2026, water infrastructure plays a vital role in quenching Padre Dam customers. Water infrastructure systems also enable us to adapt to our changing weather patterns: storing excess water in wet years for use in dry ones, transporting available supplies to where they’re needed most and recycling wastewater to expand our local water resources.
Investing in water infrastructure projects means investing in the present and future of Padre Dam and East County communities. Our community requires a reliable water supply that current and future generations can rely on, even amid intense drought, extreme weather and aging infrastructure. Water infrastructure projects are what allows us to diversify our water portfolio and strengthen our water system. Water keeps us hydrated, fed and thriving — and water infrastructure lies at the heart of it all. Learn more about California’s water infrastructure at QuenchCA - Building Water For You.
