What's New

The District Code is now online.

Not a "Mom and Pop" public agency ran out of a private residence anymore!

District MapThe 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
