Hinkle Reservoir Project

The Citrus Heights Water District (CHWD) serves its customers both surface water purchased from the San Juan Water District (SJWD) and groundwater from CHWD-owned facilities. In November, SJWD started a major maintenance project on its 62-million-gallon Hinkle Reservoir located near Folsom Dam. During the project (from November 2022 to April 2023), CHWD customers are requested to continue their efficient use of water and limit their outdoor water use in order to reduce surface water demands. If you have questions about the Hinkle Reservoir Project, contact Citrus Heights Water District by calling (916) 725-6873 or by emailing
