Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
Where does LACWW get the potable water that it supplies Lancaster with?

ANSWER:
The Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts has two sources of supply for our Waterworks District No. 40, Antelope Valley, which supplies the greater part of Antelope Valley, including Lancaster and West Palmdale.

The two sources are groundwater and imported water that we receive through the State Aqueduct. We purchase our imported water from the Antelope Valley-East Kern Water Agency(AVEK), and we pump water from our own wells throughout the Valley.
