The real value of water

The San Dieguito Water District is committed to delivering safe and reliable water to our customers. by partnering with the Santa Fe Irrigation District on the R.E. Badger Water Filtration Plant, we are able to blend our local water supply from Lake Hodges with imported water from the San Diego County Water Authority, keeping our supply reliability high and our costs low.
