About Hi-Desert Water District (HDWD)

Hi-Desert Water District (HDWD) provides a safe, reliable water supply and sewer service. The District was formed in 1962 to provide drinking water for a growing population in Yucca Valley, California near the Joshua Tree National Park. Our water service area spans 57 square miles and includes about 300 miles of pipeline.


HDWD is committed to delivering the best-quality drinking water and sewer service at the lowest possible cost. We remain vigilant in meeting the challenges of new regulations, water protection, conservation, community outreach and education while continuing to serve the needs of all our community.  HDWD is committed to protecting our groundwater through responsible recharge through a partnership with Mojave Water Agency.  HDWD purchases water from Mojave Water Agency and imports the water through the Morongo Basin Pipeline to deliver State Water Project water to replenish the Warren Basin, our primary source of drinking water.

In addition to providing clean water, HDWD built and operates a centralized sewer system and wastewater reclamation plant for the purpose of protecting the groundwater and support the needs of current and future customers.
