YLWD has partnered with the City of Placentia to replace grass located on center medians with artificial turf. These median islands are located on Yorba Linda Boulevard between McCormack Lane and Linda Vista Street.

In addition to saving water and money, installing artificial turf eliminates the need for harmful pesticides and fertilizers, helps to reduce noxious emissions from lawnmowers, and eliminates green waste disposal.
It looks good too. In fact, you may not even notice the difference.

The 2014 Water Quality Report is complete. Please Note: As of June 2013, State and Federal laws allow electronic delivery of the Annual Water Quality Report. To save money, the District is no longer mailing out hardcopies of the Annual Water Quality Report to our customers.  A digital copy is available here:

If you still wish to receive a hardcopy, please stop by the District's office or contact us at 714.701.3000 and we will be happy to send one to you in the mail.

Following closed session at the May 22, 2014 Board Meeting, the Yorba Linda Water District Board of Directors reported that the District has settled the last remaining lawsuit related to the November 2008 Freeway Complex Fire. This comes after more than five and a half years of litigation where the District was exposed to unprecedented potential liability and the water industry as a whole was threatened with adverse legal precedents.

Though some claims from the Freeway Complex Fire are still in litigation, the District is relieved to have recovered all funds the District paid out in its earlier partial settlement of the litigation and has now concluded all remaining litigation involving the District.

The District acknowledges a debt of gratitude to the Association of California Water Agencies Joint Powers Insurance Authority for its unwavering support throughout the entire legal process.

emily-winnerToday, the YLWD Board of Directors recognized Emily Garten, a third grader in Mr. Laporte's class at Rose Drive Elementary School, for winning this year's bottled water label contest. 

With her family watching, Board President, Bob Kiley presented Emily with a Proclamation from the District thanking her for artwork.  Emily’s artwork will be featured on the inside label of YLWD’s bottled water for the next year.

Since the inception of the District’s bottled water program, YLWD has incorporated water education into the bottle holding a label artwork contest each year, with the winning artwork displayed on the label. 

Dozens of entries were submitted from elementary schools across the District.  After narrowing the field to a top three finalists, the winner was decided by the public in an on-line vote.  More than 1,500 online votes were cast, with Emily receiving 753 votes to win the year’s contest. 

Thanks to all the students who participated and to everyone who voted!!!
