About the CVWD
The Crescenta Valley Water District was formed as the Crescenta Valley County Water District on December 14, 1950 by the vote of local residents. Organized under the provisions of Division 12 of the State of California Water Code, the District operates as a political subdivision of the State. The term "County" was officially deleted from the District's name in 1996.
The District is located in the Crescenta Valley area of Los Angeles County in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, between the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys. The District provides water distribution and sewage collection within its boundaries to the unincorporated communities of La Crescenta, Montrose, and Verdugo City as well as a small portion of the City of La Canada-Flintridge.
The District serves an area of approximately 4 square miles in relatively steep terrain ranging from 1,200 feet to almost 3,000 feet above sea level. The customer base is primarily residential with some light commercial along Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta and Honolulu Avenue in Montrose. The District currently provides water to over 8,000 accounts representing a population of approximately 32,000. Customer growth is steady although the Crescenta Valley area is nearly built-out. Residential growth is occurring through increased housing density in the multiple-unit zoned areas (primarily Montrose) as well as limited in-fill housing development on random parcels in La Crescenta.
