As a subdivision of the state, the County is charged with providing numerous services that affect the lives of all residents. The County Department of Regional Planning performs all land use planning functions for the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. Services include long range planning, land development counseling, project/case intake and processing, environmental review and zoning enforcement for County unincorporated communities. Los Angeles County Waterworks District No. 37, Acton, is a special district formed in accordance with Division 16, Sections 55000 through 55991 of the State Water Code to supply drinking water for urban use in Acton. The District is operated by the County of Los Angeles - Department of Public Works - Waterworks Division and is governed by the County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors. The original water system was installed in 1963 by the District using general obligation bonds and a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Water and Sewer Grant. Subsequent additions were financed by developers requesting extensions of service to their properties. The District currently serves approximately 6,500 people through 1,400 metered connections. The water supply for the District is primarily groundwater pumped from three wells owned and operated by the District and is supplemented by imported water from the State Water Project.
