Operations & Finances

The Twentynine Palms Water District strives to provide valuable information about the District through its website. This section is designed for easy access to public information relating to operations and finances. For information not contained on this website, please contact the District at (760) 367-7546.




The Twentynine Palms Water District was formed in 1954 when the community voted, by a 5-1 margin, to form a County Water District (Water Code 30000 et seq.). Members of the Chamber of Commerce known as the “Water Committee” spearheaded this effort. Today the Twentynine Palms Water District serves the city of Twentynine Palms and outlying areas by pumping and distributing local groundwater – the only available supply. The District serves about 18,000 people over 87 square miles. The District maintains about 8,000 meters, 200 miles of pipeline and 17 million gallons of water storage capacity.
