West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) is an innovative public agency that provides drinking and recycled water to its 185-square mile service area. West Basin purchases imported water from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) and wholesales the imported water to cities and private companies in southwest Los Angeles County. West Basin is a recognized leader in the production of recycled water and its conservation and education programs are fundamental to West Basin's diverse water portfolio. To protect the local groundwater basin from seawater intrusion, West Basin provides water for injection into the South Bay's seawater barriers.
