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

News and Information

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.

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. 

As California edures a period of historic drought, water conservation madates have become commonplace. In Nipomo. conservation requirements have been issued both by the Govenor in Executive Order B-29-15 (April 2015) and through the Nipomo Mesa Managment Area (NMMA) Technical Group (May 2015). The Woodlands Mutual Water Company must comply with both mandates. Please see memos below for additional information.
