The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, often called the "MWD", is the cooperative formed to treat and provide potable water to the largest group of cities anywhere in the United States of America. It is comprised of 26 cities and 19 municipal water districts that supply more than 18 million residents with treated water within an area of approximately 5200 square miles in Southern California. An act of the California State Legislature created this cooperative in 1928 with a mission to construct as well as operate the Colorado River Aqueduct as its primary water source.
Those portions of Southern California which are most heavily populated are serviced by the MWD, which has its headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Fresh water reservoirs operated by the Metropolitan Water District serve customers throughout Los Angeles, San Diego, Ventura, Riverside, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. It also operates five treatment plants, one of which in Granada Hills is the largest such operation west of the Mississippi River.
The Metropolican Water District of Southern California is one of the biggest employers in the area, employing over 2,000 people alone at its five treatment and purification plants. Employment opportunities exist within a wide range of fields, including management, community relations, chemistry, engineering, electrical and media services. Most MWD employees are at least 20 year veterans of the cooperative, thanks to a extensive benefits and pension program far surpassing anything offered in the private sector.
