Suburban Water Systems purchases the other 20 percent of its supply from agencies including the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Covina Irrigating Company, and California Domestic Water Company. Suburban Water Systems supplies water to the Whittier/La Mirada District. The Whittier/La Mirada District, in part, spans east of Catalina Avenue beyond Colima Road and south of Mar Vista Street. Suburban Water Systems could supply water to the Project Site from its existing water main on Colima Road.
