Otay Water District

The Otay Water District is a water, recycled water, and sewer service provider. Through the efforts of a small group of private citizens, ranchers, and landowners who were concerned about the declining quality and quantity of water from their rural wells, the State Legislature authorized the establishment of the Otay Water District in 1956 as a California Special District under the provisions of the Municipal Water District Act of 1911. The Otay Water District is a "revenue neutral" public agency where each end user pays only his or her fair share of the District's costs of acquiring, treating, transporting, or the operation and maintenance of the public water, recycled water, or sewer facilities.
