CA Executive Order Prohibiting Water Shut-off for Non-Payment ended December, 31, 2021.
This Executive Order originally issued March 2020 prohibited shutting off water service for non-payment. The CA Governor has extended the moratorium via SB 155, through December 31, 2021.
LATE FEES REINSTATED AS OF MARCH 26, 2022: Past due balances will have a 25% late fee applied to the balance if payment is not received by the 25th. If you have a delinquent water bill over 2 months old and over $200, please contact the District Office to set up a payment arrangement (up to 12 installments) to avoid water shut-off.

Casitas Connection turned on July 27, 2021 – Turned off January 13, 2022
To help meet current customer water demand, MOWD had to begin purchasing water. Customers may experience slightly lower than normal water pressure during this time. Customers may also notice a slight difference in color and taste between the MOWD and Casitas Water. MOWD uses chlorine for disinfection, while Casitas MWD uses chloramines for disinfection.
Due to increased water demands, the District had to turn on its connection to Casitas Municipal Water District (9/29/2020) to supplement the groundwater supply pumped from our wells.
We are still in a Stage 3 Drought, we are noticing increased water consumption during the daytime hours.
Reminder to not irrigate between 10 am – 6 pm.
