60th Anniversary

Upper District Celebrates 60 Years
Upper District is celebrating six decades of innovation, conservation, and good water management. The District was formed by the voters on December 8, 1959 to help sustain adequate imported water supplies for the rapidly growing San Gabriel Valley. It has played a vital role in supplementing local water supplies by importing water from the State Water Project to replenish the Main San Gabriel Basin. Today, Upper District has taken a leadership role in educating the public on their local water supply and the benefits of water efficiency practices.
