About CWA

Representing the Interests of IOWCs and the Customers They Serve


Nearly six million people in California are served by investor-owned water companies. The California Water Association (CWA) represents the interests of these companies, who are regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission, as they strive to provide safe, reliable, high-quality water and excellent customer service in a cost-effective manner.

CWA provides a forum for sharing best management practices, a means of promoting sound water policy by legislators and regulatory agencies, and opportunities for educating the public on protecting and efficiently using water resources.
