Murrieta Service Area
In 2005, Western merged the former Murrieta County Water District into our operations. Since that time, Western has had the privilege of providing our valued customers with reliable service. In recent months, Western conducted a preliminary comparison of water delivery options to ensure a high level of service at the lowest cost to you – our Murrieta Service Area customers.
Western’s customers have received a notice for a public hearing on October 4th regarding consideration of proposed water rates. The District will be holding a Town Hall meeting in Murrieta on September 21, 2017 at 6:30 p.m., at the Murrieta City Council Chambers, 1 Town Square. This is an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions and learn more about the need for the proposed rates and the cost of providing water service. District staff will share information on rates at this meeting, which will not include the discussion of the Murrieta Service Area challenges. For additional details on the proposed water rates, please click here.
