IWA’s service area covers the City of Indio, which is approximately 33 square miles and in 2020, supplied approximately 19,880-acre feet (6.5 billion gallons) of water to businesses and residents. As one of the fastest growing cities in the Coachella Valley, IWA is committed to meet both current and growing needs of the City.

IWA focuses its efforts on field operations, long-term project and regional planning, and conservation to ensure a reliable water supply for its customers. IWA’s dedicated team operates and maintains a complex water system consisting of 345 miles of mains, 10,847 system valves, 20 production wells, treatment facilities and reservoirs to ensure water effectively and efficiently travels from the groundwater source to your tap.
