CRW serves approximately 60 square miles, including much of north Clackamas County, Sunnyside, Milwaukie and Clackamas. The southern boundaries of the district extend into the rural areas surrounding Oregon City in south Clackamas County.
In the north service area, water is supplied from the CRW filter plant, which is capable of producing 30 million gallons of drinking water per day drawn from the Clackamas River.
