Our Source Water
The Kennebec Water District has used China Lake as its source of supply since 1905. China lake, covering an area of 6.1 square miles and a maximum depth of 85 feet, holds about 31.7 billion gallons of fresh water at any given time and provides more than enough capacity year around. The intake is in the West Basin of the lake which is largely undeveloped due to the Kennebec Water District’s management of these lands for over 100 years. Click below to find out more.Source Water
