WMWC management and staff strive to provide our shareholders with a reliable and safe water supply at a reasonable cost, while providing the highest level of customer service.
The Woodlands Mutual Water Company (WMWC) of San Luis Obispo County is a corporation organized under the laws of California for the purpose of providing water and sewer services to property owners on approximately 957 acres situated on the Nipomo Mesa – commonly known as “The Woodlands”. WMWC was formed for the purpose of serving water to its shareholders at cost. The purpose of a mutual water company is not to make a profit, but to charge such fees and rates for the services it provides as are necessary to acquire water and to build, operate, and maintain a water and sewer system in the community.

News and Information
DROUGHT STATUS – FEBRUARY 7, 2017
Although we have been fortunate to receive substantial quantities of rainfall this past winter, we would like to remind everyone that WMWC customers are still under the 50% reduction mandate imposed in April 2016, and will remain so until the NMMA Technical Group determines otherwise. See memo for further details. Drought Status Memo 02/07/2017
2015 CONSUMER CONFIDENCE REPORT AVAILABLE NOW
NEW RATES EFFECTIVE 1/1/2016
Rates for water, sewer and supplemental water have not been increased since the formation of the Woodlands Mutual Water Company. However, in order to ensure that dependable service continues, that the system is maintained in peak operating condition, and to plan for future maintenance of the system as it ages, the Board of Directors adopted adjustments to the rates at its October 15, 2015 meeting. A memo was mailed to each of our shareholders in early January. The memo presented the adjusted monthly rates effective January 1, 2016. These rates will be reflected on the invoices to be distributed in March 2016. Please contact us at (805) 540-5208 with questions on your invoices.
CONTINUED DROUGHT RESPONSE AND WATER CONSERVATION EFFORTS AT WMWC
As California endures a period of historic drought, water conservation mandates have become commonplace. In Nipomo, conservation requirements have been issued both by the Governor in Executive Order B-29-15 (April 2015) and through the Nipomo Mesa Management Area (NMMA) Technical Group (May 2015). The Woodlands Mutual Water Company must comply with both mandates. Please see memos below for additional information.
