Our Water

LP Water Supply FPO

Montecito Water District manages a diversified water supply portfolio, a complex water distribution system, and advanced treatment processes in order to provide high quality drinking water to approximately 4,600 service connections in Montecito and Summerland.

Three things in particular make our Special District unique:

  1. Semi-arid Climate: Low rainfall and cyclical droughts mean limited surface and groundwater supplies.
  2. Diverse Geography and Topography: Our infrastructure and distribution system is very complex, similar to agencies many times larger than ours.
  3. High Quality Water: The District prides itself on treatment, conducted at our own plants with advanced technologies.

In addition to describing capital projects, supply forecasts, and long-term plans, this section of our web site contains all types of information to help you learn more about your water.
