About San Juan Water District

San Juan Water District is a community services district established by a vote of the citizens in 1954, formed under Section 61000 et seq., Title 6, Division 3 of the California Government Code Water Code, Section 3000. We provide reliable, high-quality water service to both retail and wholesale customers in eastern Sacramento and southern Placer counties.
