SECURING RESOURCES AND LEADING BY EXAMPLE
The Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA/Agency) continues to lead the way for innovation, resource management and stewardship. We exemplify the utility mission of maintaining quality resources while mutually promoting environmental awareness. In a world in which water supply is never guaranteed, IEUA makes sustainability, drought resiliency and water resource management top priorities.
IEUA is a leading agency in southern California for water-use efficiency,
renewable energy, resource management, and public awareness. Transforming
from solely a supplemental water provider to also providing wastewater
treatment, developing renewable energy and providing compost, IEUA has expanded its reach to be a fundamental asset in environmental stewardship for the region.
The Agency continues to serve a resource leadership role and recognizes the region’s needs while also taking population growth into account. IEUA’s service area, located in the Inland Empire, is one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. The Agency’s service area population is projected to surpass 875,000 this year. As current growth trends move upward, IEUA’s Board of Directors and management team recognize the need to develop new local water supplies to offset the need for additional imported water, to reduce potential drought impacts and to lower its net energy use. For a sustainable future, we continue to search for and implement innovative solutions. IEUA provides leadership in resource management and promotes environmental stewardship by committing to goals, which meet the needs of our stakeholders and maintain the value of service provided to the community. The Agency’s goals focus on areas; such as, fiscal responsibility, water reliability and environmental stewardship. The objectives established within each goal provide a road map for the Agency to ensure that we provide the best possible service to our partnering agencies and the community. We look forward to the future and will continue to establish and maintain planning efforts and initiatives that reflect our commitment to deliver high-quality, reliable services to customers in a regional, cost-effective manner.
