The City of Huntington Beach has owned and operated its own water utility since 1964, when it was purchased from the Southern California Water Company. Since that time the City and the water system have grown to service a population of over 200,000. Today, City employees run the Utilities Division's five distinct sections: Administration, Quality, Production, Distribution and Meters.

The Water Division also takes an active role in local and regional water issues. The City is a member agency of the Municipal Water District of Orange County,which provides "imported" water from the Colorado River and the State Water Project via the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
