Pajaro/Sunny Mesa Community Services District

The Pajaro/Sunny Mesa Community Services District (PSMCSD) water system was formed and has been in operation since 1986.  The District was created by the Monterey County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) with the consolidation of Pajaro Community Services District, the Sunny Mesa Water District, and Monterey County Service Area No. 73.  The District is a public agency governed by a five (5) member Board of Directors that serves without compensation.

The District provides potable water services, fire flows, parks, and streetlight services to thousands of residents of North Monterey County.  The District provides these sevices from the Pajaro River in the north, to Moss Landing in the west, to the Highway 101 corridor in the south. Part of PSMCSD's senior groundwater rights were granted by the U.S. District Court in San Jose, CA.  It is the only public agency which provides public potable water services in the Pajaro, Elkhorn, and Prunedale areas.

The PSMCSD water systems are regulated by the State Water Resources Control Board and Monterey County Environmental Health Department.
