Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA/Agency) is a regional wastewater treatment agency and wholesale distributor of imported water. Today, the Agency is responsible for serving approximately 875,000 people over 242 square miles in western San Bernardino County. The Agency is focused on providing three key services: (1) treating wastewater and developing recycled water, local water resources, and conservation programs to reduce the region’s dependence on imported water supplies, thus enabling the service area to become drought-resilient; (2) converting biosolids and waste products into a high-quality compost made from recycled materials; and (3) generating electrical energy from renewable sources.
The Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA/Agency) seeks to fulfill its responsibility as a “Steward of the Region”; committed to sustainably enhancing the quality of life in the Inland Empire by ensuring that a clean, plentiful water supply is available now and in the future.

This includes becoming a regional provider of wastewater treatment with domestic and industrial disposal systems, developing energy producing infrastructure, taking a leadership role in water resource management, and maintaining a high standard of community and educational outreach.
The Agency was originally formed as the Chino Basin Municipal Water District on June 6, 1950 as a municipal corporation with a mission to supply supplemental imported water purchased from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) to municipalities in the Chino Groundwater Basin.
