Originally founded as the San Marcos County Water District in 1955 by a group of local citizens to answer the shrinking water table in the San Marcos and Twin Oaks valleys, the District was formed to provide imported water from Northern California and the Colorado River. The District continued to grow as an independent, special district and in May of 1989, changed its name to the Vallecitos Water District.
Today, with a new name and extended focus, Vallecitos Water District currently serves a population of more than 100,000 within its 45-square-mile boundary. Learn more about the District's history by watching the video below:
