Santa Clarita Valley Water Agency (SCV Water) was created January 1, 2018 by an act of the State Legislature (SB 634) through the merger of the four water agencies in the Santa Clarita Valley. SCV Water provides water services to a population of approximately 273,000 in the Santa Clarita Valley through 72,000 water service connections.

Some of these include finding and maintaining adequate water resources, treating water to ensure its health and safety, coping with the loss of skilled retirees, engaging the community and communicating the value of water, managing the maintainenance and replacement of aging infrastructure, and ensuring adequate financial resources to meet these challenges.

The Strategic Plan is designed to support their vision to provide exemplary water management for a high quality of life in the Santa Clarita Valley. This vision will be accomplished by fulfilling the mission of SCV Water: Providing responsible water stewardship to ensure the Santa Clarita Valley has reliable supplies of high quality water at a reasonable cost.
