Comprehensive Plan Update

The Malaga Water District has adopted an updated comprehensive plan, pending review by the Health District. The plan must be updated every six to ten years.  This plan shows how we will use our resources to maintain the water system, update aging infrastructure, and plan for new growth.  It also includes a water use efficiency plan.  We need all customers to be using less than 240 gallons per day by 2020 and less than 230 gallons per day by 2029.
You can read the details of the presentation to the board in the PDF below.  We encourage all customers to come to board meetings if they have questions.

Cold Weather Water

Winter has arrived, or at least cold weather. Here are some suggestions to help
keep your water running during the winter.
Protect any outside faucets with coverings available at any hardware store.
Protect any exposed lines with heat tape or wrap them with insulation.
To help protect your meter, use Styrofoam insulation to surround the meter and
cover it.
The water is normally about 50 degrees. If temperatures drop drastically, you
could run a small amount of water to keep the lines from freezing. If you notice your
water running slowly and cold keep a small stream of water running to prevent a total freeze up.

2017 Updated Information

As of January 2017 all of the papers that would normally be sent with your billing will now be housed on this website.  The current 2017 Consumer Confidence Report can be found under the resources tab, or by clicking on this link.  

Por favor siga el enlace mas arriba para el último informe de confianza del consumidor.

Under that tab you will also find our updated water rates as well as the letter to customers with a couple of policy changes.

This is a cost saving measure as well as a paper saving measure and you can now access this information at your convenience online.

If you are ever unable to pay your water bill for any reason, communication with the manager is best.  Please don't wait until your bill is past due or your water is turned off as there are fewer options for us to work with you at that point.
