Residents in a community who desire to have public water can petition their Town to study and develop a water district to provide them with public water. The Town conducts an Engineering evaluation with OCWA’s input to determine the feasibility of constructing a water system. If it is determined viable, the Town will construct the water system and after complete and all approvals obtained, OCWA will operate and maintain the system.
