West Basin Commemorates 75 Years of Water Reliability
West Basin is celebrating more than seven decades of ensuring water reliability for its service area communities in coastal Los Angeles. It has been 75 years since West Basin was formed by a vote of the people in 1947 to make local water supplies more reliable through the protection of local groundwater sources and identification of new water sources.
Since its formation, the District has been delivering on its mission of water reliability and establishing drought resiliency through balanced and cost-effective water supply diversification. Seventy-five years later, West Basin remains committed to its mission to “provide a safe and reliable supply of high-quality water to the communities it serves” and to being an innovative leader in the water industry.
