BORREGO WATER DISTRICT

 

The Mission of the Borrego Water District is to preserve and conserve its priceless resource so as to reverse the overdraft of the Borrego Valley while at the same time to provide quality water and sewer service in an efficient, cost effective manner while providing a high level of customer satisfaction 





SAVE OUR PRECIOUS RESOURCE, CONSERVE WATER IN THE DESERT




WATER QUALITY IN BWD MEETS
ALL STATE AND FEDERAL STANDARDS


News reports are circulating that the water in Borrego Springs does not meet State Standards and
that statement needs to be clarified 

The State of California reports that the privately operated water system in Ocotillo Oasis Campground has violated drinking water standards for fluoride. BWD has no affiliation with the operators nor any responsibility for operations
of Ocotillo Oasis' water system.
