BOARD APPROVES ANNEXATION AGREEMENT WITH OCWD
On October 10, 2013, the Yorba Linda Water District Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve the agreement with Orange County Water District (OCWD) for the Annexation of the remaining 26% of the YLWD service area into the OCWD groundwater basin.
“This will prove to be a major enhancement to the overall reliability of the District’s water supply,” said Board President, Gary Melton. “In time, we will be able to pump the maximum amount of groundwater allowable each year. With ground water being less costly than import water, this will vastly enhance our ability to keep our variable water costs down and sustain low water rates for our customers.”
Yorba Linda Water District is a public agency serving residents of Yorba Linda and portions of Placentia, Brea, Anaheim and areas of unincorporated Orange County.
Yorba Linda Water District is totally independent of all city and county governments. None of the revenue obtained by Yorba Linda Water District is used to subsidize non-water related activities or the activities of any other agency.
