Anaheim Public Utilities Water Services began in 1879 when the leaders of Anaheim took responsibility for operating the water production and distribution system. The original system included 1 shallow well, a 20,000-gallon redwood storage tank and 1 mile of wooden pipeline.
In the following century we provided the residents and businesses of Anaheim with the water they needed to succeed. As the city has grown we have responded by developing new water systems to meet the future needs of Anaheim. We are more than just a utility – we are an integral part of the community that we serve.
Anaheim Water Supply
Anaheim Public Utilities actively monitors our water supply situation, working with our regional water supply agencies (Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and Orange County Water District) regarding overall supply reliability for Anaheim and the region. Learn more about water supply.
