    In light of concerns surrounding COVID-19 (the coronavirus), Padre Dam wants to reassure customers that this virus has no impact on the District’s drinking water supply. Padre Dam is committed to providing its customers with safe and reliable water that is both available and plentiful.


    Padre Dam receives 100 percent of our drinking water supply from the San Diego County Water Authority water treatment plants. The final process of water treatment includes disinfection, which inactivates viruses, including the coronavirus.  Water is tested throughout Padre Dam’s system on a daily basis to ensure it maintains a consistent disinfectant residual level.

Our water meets all stringent state and federal drinking water requirements. Click here to see Padre Dam’s most recent Water Quality Report. Padre Dam customers can continue to use and drink tap water as usual. Padre Dam will continue to provide its customers with safe and reliable drinking water. 


    In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), our lobby is closed until further notice, effective Monday, March 16, 2020. The health of the public is our top priority and the health of our staff is key to ensuring high quality water and wastewater service for our customers.  We have made the difficult decision to cancel all tours at District facilities and any large gathering of people until further notice. You may continue to see Padre Dam employees working in the field as we operate our essential systems to provide water and wastewater services to you.  

    Customer Service representatives will still be available over the phone during normal business hours to assist customers.

  • Region’s Water Agencies Collaborate to Ensure Water Security

    While we all share concerns over the health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, one thing that you don’t need to worry about is the safety and reliability of our region’s drinking water.

    The San Diego County Water Authority and its 24 member agencies have increased regional coordination and communication during this unprecedented time to provide uninterrupted access to clean and abundant supplies.

    • Tap water in the San Diego region remains safe to drink due to numerous robust treatment processes used by local and regional water providers.
    • There is no evidence that coronavirus is transmitted through treated water. The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends that Americans continue to use, and drink tap water as usual.
    • The Water Authority has implemented protections and protocols to protect its workforce from the virus, including additional protections for highly specialized water system operators who are critical for ensuring water deliveries.

    “The region’s water agencies are collaborating in complete solidarity to perform our vital mission of providing safe and reliable water supplies. We are taking smart, precautionary steps to ensure water security,” said Sandra L. Kerl, general manager of the Water Authority.
