Central Basin Municipal Water District is a public agency that purchases imported water from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD). Central Basin wholesales the imported water to cities, mutual water companies, investor-owned utilities and private companies in southeast Los Angeles County. Central Basin also supplies water used for groundwater replenishment and provides the region with recycled water for municipal, commercial and industrial use.

There are 24 cities in Central Basin’s service area. Central Basin’s service area uses approximately 315,000 acre-feet of water annually. An acre-foot of water is approximately 326,000 gallons, enough to meet the water needs of two average families in and around their homes for one year.
