About Us

The Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) is a dynamic, growing organization whose sole purpose is to provide high quality, safe and reliable water and wastewater services, while practicing good stewardship of natural and financial resources. CVWD is one of the leading retail water providers in the region which is attributed to our innovation and leadership in addressing regional and state-wide water issues.

CVWD's service area includes the City of Rancho Cucamonga, portions of the cities of Upland, Ontario and Fontana, and some unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County.

Special District


The CVWD is a public corporation formed under the provisions of Division 12 of the State Water Code. CVWD is a special district, which is an independent unit of local government serving the needs of the community. Special districts are the most efficient forms of government since the cost of the services provided to the customers directly equals the revenue generated from the charges for services provided.
