Service Area: The Purissima Hills Water District provides service to two-thirds of the Town of Los Altos Hills, a rural community adjacent to the cities of Palo Alto and Los Altos, and unincorporated Santa Clara County to the south. The District serves predominantly single-family homes on minimum one-acre lots. The largest customer is Foothill College.
Water Source:Purissima Hills Water District receives 100% of its water supply from snowmelt in the Sierra Nevada Mountains which is stored in the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. The District purchases this water from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) which delivers it to Los Altos Hills through a gravity-fed 18" transmission main. The water is then pumped to 10 storage tanks located throughout the Town for distribution to customers.
