Pine Grove Community Services District

Special districts, a form of local government, are created by communities to meet specific service needs, such as water delivery.

Funding for services provided by special districts comes from local property taxes and fees charged to customers for water provided by the District.

Special districts are independent of the state, county, and city/town governments and have their own elected boards. Special Districts allow residents to have local community members advocating on their behalf. There are more than two thousand special districts in California.

PGCSD purchases treated water from the Amador Water Agency through the Central Amador Water Project (CAWP) and distribute it to residential and commercial users.

The District does not provide water treatment services; PGCSD purchases treated surface water from Tiger Reservoir from AWA. The water is treated at AWA’s Buckhorn Treatment Plant, passes through the CAWP transmission pipeline and fills the storage tanks serving the District.

The District provides necessary maintenance and operation of the water distribution system. The District uses groundwater for non-potable uses and maintains a single well at the district office. The well is used primarily to provide bulk water to developers for construction sites.
