Water

The district provides potable water service to approximately 2,200 connections. An annual report is mailed to all water customers which provides a summary of the District’s water quality including a comparison to regulatory requirements. The California State Division of Drinking Water regulates the District’s water supplies and the Annual Consumer Confidence Report can be found on the District website or by calling the District’s offices.

The District’s water supplies include groundwater, Lopez water and State water. Regulation of the District’s groundwater supply is also subject to the stipulations adopted in 2005 for the adjudication of the Santa Maria groundwater basin. Lopez and State water supplies are provided by the County of San Luis Obispo under terms of water supply contracts. The District’s water supply reliability is relatively high and the district was increasing water in storage during the recent drought.
