The Diablo Vista County Water System was formed in 1950 to provide untreated canal water for irrigation to 475 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.
The system is currently turned off for annual winter maintenance. The pumps will be turned on once the canal is filled with water by CCWD and DVWS Engineers have tested the system. This is scheduled to occur mid to late April.For further information contact the dispatcher at (925) 383-2233 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
