Frequently Asked Questions

Much of the District’s infrastructure, including water mains and water meters, is nearing the end of its useful life. If the water delivery system is not kept up to date, catastrophic incidents, caused by malfunctions could become more likely. System failures can cause property damage from flooding and waste large quantities of precious water. These incidents are expensive, so taking the necessary precautions is much less costly over time.
