WMWC was formed for the purpose of serving water to its shareholders at cost.

News and Information
TIME TO ADJUST YOUR IRRIGATION CONTROLLER
The recent first rain of the season provided a
great reminder that now is the time to consider adjusting your irrigation
controller. With the winter months now approaching, many customers are choosing
to adjust or even turn off their irrigation system. You could also consider turning off your
controller now, and then if necessary, you can reactivate it during extended
dry or warm periods. Remember, not only will this save water, but will also
save you money on your water bill.
IN THE NEWS - METHOD OF DISINFECTION
WMWCo has received a number of comments from customers inquiring about chloramines. WMWCo currently disinfects its well water with chlorine only. Any future change in our method of disinfection would only occur after the issue is addressed with our shareholders in town hall meetings.
REPLACE YOUR TURF GRASS AND RECEIVE A REBATE OF UP TO $2,000!
California's Department of Water Resources (DWR) recently announced a rebate program for consumers that will help save water through turf replacement ($2 per square foot). Rebates will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, it is recommended interested applicants submit their application as soon as possible.
The rebate program is financed by the Proposition 1 water bond approved by voters in 2014. The program will help carry out Governor Brown’s April 1 Executive Order on drought to further reduce water use in homes by replacing more than 10 million square feet of turf.
Residents can apply for the rebates on the State's website at www.SaveOurWaterRebates.com
