Located in the South Bay region of San Diego County, Sweetwater Authority (Authority) is a publicly-owned, joint powers water agency, with policies and procedures established by a seven-member Governing Board (Board) comprised of five members of the South Bay Irrigation District and two members from the City of National City. The water system originated in 1868 and the Autho...rity took over ownership in 1977.
The Authority is the most diverse water purveyor in San Diego with a water resources portfolio that includes two reservoirs, an advanced surface water treatment facility, groundwater wells, a newly-expanded groundwater desalination facility and access to imported water. The water system is essentially built out; however, growth will occur through redevelopment.
