WATER IN THE DESERT
The Indio Water Authority relies exclusively on the Whitewater Aquifer to supply clean and affordable water to customers. High temperatures, minimal rain, and rapid population growth mean that effective conservation is critical to protecting the precious water resource beneath our feet. The Indio Water Authority provides tools to help you save money and use water more efficiently.
IWA maintains a budget to reimburse residents and business owners for replacing grass with drought-tolerant desert landscaping, and for replacing inefficient irrigation systems.
