Diablo Vista Water

The Diablo Vista County Water System was formed in 1950 to provide untreated canal water for irrigation to 470 homes in the area bounded roughly by Oak Park Boulevard, the Contra Costa canal, Boyd Road and Patterson Boulevard, known locally in Pleasant Hill as "Poet's Corner."  In 1963, the Diablo Vista Water System merged with the newly incorporated City of Pleasant Hill, and changed it's name to Diablo Vista Water System "DVWS".

The service charge for running the water system is included as an assessment on the property tax bill of residents that reside with the boundaries of DVWS.  It is not necessary to notify DVWS if you are a new resident or are moving out of the area.

System Update

The system has been turned off for the 2022 season for winter maintenance.  It will be turned back on in the Spring of 2023.  
Please refer to a letter sent to residents dated June 28, 2022 regarding the Drought Management Plan enacted this season.
