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.

The Western Board of Directors formed the Murrieta Committee to consider whether to further evaluate service options. Staff provided the Murrieta Committee with information on potential cost savings, infrastructure needs, water quality challenges, and imported water capacity needs. During this investigation, staff considered if Murrieta residents could be served more economically by neighboring agencies. Staff was directed to further review the service options available. Since then, these activities have taken place regarding the Murrieta Service Area.
