The Elsinore Valley exists today because of water. Located in a desert region, early settlers made do with scarce local water resources. Life was hard. Today, the Valley is thriving. It supports a $287 million local economy and an enviable quality of life - all supported by water. The Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District is proud of our role as stewards of this precious resource. From our formation in 1950, we have worked to harness local water resources and provide our customers with a safe, affordable water supply. As we celebrate over 50 years of service to this community, please join us in taking a historical look at some of the important milestones that have led us to where we are today.
