Casitas Connection turned on July 27, 2021

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.
