About Del Paso Manor Water District
Del Paso Manor Water District was founded in 1956 when a group of residents formed a public water agency. We provide potable water for residential, commercial, and institutional use. The District is responsible for maintaining the
infrastructure delivery system that provides the water to customers, to assure that the water meets or exceeds required water quality standards, and that there is always a reliable supply of water for the health and safety of the District's residents, businesses, and institutional users.
The District is governed by a five (5) member Board of Directors elected at large by the registered voters who reside within the District. Policy direction is set by the Board of Directors and administered by the General Manager.
The majority of our wells and distribution system date to when they were first installed by the developers between 1949 -1955. While we are proud of our history, we face system mapping challenges due to the transformations since our inception. We are continually looking to improve our infrastructure. Our Mission is to provide safe drinking water in accordance with California and federal regulations and to maintain a reliable water supply for water consumption and fire protection.
