Midway Heights CWD serves water customers in the
northern Meadow Vista and western Weimar area, delivering both treated and untreated
water via underground lines. The District encompasses about 4.1 square miles
between the Bear River to the west and Interstate 80 to the east (see map.) There are currently about 777 active customer
connections on the system.
MHCWD is a California Special District and, as such, is
governed by an elected Board of Directors. Day to day
operations are handled by the District's maintenance staff under the direction
of the General Manager, who in turn reports to the Board.
Not a "Mom and Pop" public agency ran out of a private residence anymore!The District saved funds for approximately 10 years in order to replace the truck fleet. The prior truck fleet only had one four wheel drive service vehicle.
District trucks ready to roll! The District purchased the three four wheel drive service trucks in 2018. The trucks are set up similar in order to be interchangeable in case of a breakdown, maintenance and mileage rotation. When District staff is working on a project or responding to emergencies, one truck hauls the backhoe, one hauls the dump trailer and one is set up with specialized tools of the trade. In the background is the District's 330,000 gallon tank built in 2012
Note: Irrigation water is also known as "untreated,"
"non-potable," "raw" or "ditch" water.
