Due to the federal and state Safe Drinking Water Acts, IID water users who receive service canal water at their homes or businesses must have an alternate source of water for drinking and cooking purposes (California Health and Safety Code Section 116275(s)). Water users that fail to maintain this alternative water delivery service will be disconnected from the canal water system and held responsible for all costs associated with the termination process.
If you are not currently receiving water from one of the State Water Resources Control Board - Division of Drinking Water Approved Providers, a municipal (city) water system, or a private permitted water system (not a point-of-entry filtration system), you must arrange to have water delivered to your home or business by an Approved Provider or your domestic canal water connection will be terminated.

Through much effort and customer participation IID has achieved the goals outlined in its Compliance Agreement with the California Department of Public Health to satisfy state and federal Safe Drinking Water Act regulations. IID monitors all service pipe connections to ensure compliance with the alternative water delivery service requirement, and reports on its efforts annually to CDPH.
Please contact IID at 1-760-339-9191 if you have any other questions regarding your domestic canal water connection.
