District water quality professionals monitor your water 24 hours
per day. They conduct thousands of tests per year with the help of
independent state-certified laboratories. The tests are conducted
to extraordinary levels of accuracy: the most intensive test can
detect one-hundredth of a part of a substance in a billion parts
of water. That is equivalent to finding one drop of a substance in
170,000 gallons of water. Our drinking water meets or exceeds
drinking water standards.

More than half of Montecito’s water comes from Lake
Cachuma and is treated at the Cater Regional Treatment Plant
in Santa Barbara. The remainder of Montecito’s water is from
Jameson Lake, Fox and Alder Creeks and Doulton Tunnel, and is
treated in our own state-of-the art treatment facilities.
Montecito also owns groundwater wells, which are reserved for
use during periods of high demand and drought.
