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.

District projects that are being considered, or are in process, include:
