About Meadow Vista County Water District

Meadow Vista County Water District was established in 1950. It currently provides treated water to approximately 1,500 customers living in the Meadow Vista and Applegate area. Our goal is, and always has been, to provide our customers with a safe and dependable supply of water. Meadow Vista County Water District consistently provides drinking water that meets and even exceeds State and Federal standards.

The District’s water supply source is the Sierra snowmelt run-off from the Yuba and Bear River water sheds flows through Lake Spaulding, and the Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Drum Forebay. Water is conveyed from Drum Forebay through Placer County Water Agency’s (PCWA) Boardman Canal to the Meadow Vista County Water District’s water treatment plant where it is treated according to the California Department of Health Services regulations.
