Welcome to the Ramona Municipal Water District website, proudly serving the unincorporated community of Ramona, located in San Diego County.
RAMONA MUNICIPAL WATER DISTRICT
A recent story that aired on NBC 7 News San Diego regarding water quality issues in the San Diego region mentioned Ramona as an area of recent contamination. The news story refers to potential groundwater contamination and/or service areas outside of the RMWD boundary, which does not apply to water distributed within the RMWD system. RMWD imports 100% of the water that is distributed to our customers from San Diego County Water Authority, and tests it on an almost daily basis. RMWD water meets or exceeds all federal and state water safety requirements. If there was ever a case where RMWD water was not safe, the community would be notified immediately.
RMWD is also required to prepare a water quality report on an annual basis. The 2016 report will be published in June 2017. A link to the 2015 report can be found on our website under District Links to the right.
Drought Response Level 1: Drought Watch Condition
The Ramona Municipal Water District is currently in Drought Response Level 1: Drought Watch Condition, effective Tuesday, July 12, 2016. These water conservation measures apply during a Drought Watch Condition:

NOTICE OF JUDGMENT IN FAVOR OF RMWD
Many RMWD customers recently received in the mail a legal document called “Notice of Entry of Judgment” for Superior Court Case No. 37-2014-00083195-CU-BT-CTL, Eugene G. Plantier as Trustee of the Plantier Family Trust, Progressive Properties Incorporated, and Premium Development, LLC, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated v. Ramona Municipal Water District. A copy of this document can be found by clicking on this link: Notice of Entry of Judgment
This court-ordered mailing came from the lawyers who brought a class action lawsuit against RMWD on behalf of Mr. Eugene Plantier, Progressive Properties, and Premium Development, representing sewer ratepayers. This Notice of Entry of Judgment advises all class members that trial of the case is now over, and includes the Court’s decision in favor of RMWD and against the plaintiffs. The mailing was required by the Court to notify all member of the class about the outcome of the case. Those receiving the notice were to include all RMWD customers who paid a sewer service charge on or after November 22, 2012, were customers of the District before April 13, 2015, and did not opt out of the class before November 2, 2015.
No district funds were used in preparing this mailing; it was paid for by the plaintiffs.
What customers should understand from reading the Notice of Entry of Judgment and Judge Taylor’s ruling (Judgment and Order - “Exhibit A”) is that the Court found in RMWD’s favor following trial of the case. The lawsuit was divided into two phases. In Phase 1, the Court examined whether the plaintiffs exhausted their administrative remedies, as required, before bringing the lawsuit. Phase 2 was to cover plaintiffs’ remaining challenges to RMWD’s past sewer service charges. The Notice of Entry of Judgment explains that on November 3, 2015, the Court ruled in favor of RMWD, and against the class, on Phase 1. The Court found that plaintiffs’ failure to submit any protest during any of the annual Proposition 218 hearings before RMWD’s elected Board on sewer service charges barred the class action lawsuit challenging those sewer service charges. Consequently, the Court dismissed the lawsuit against RMWD. This decision in Phase 1 precluded the need for a trial regarding Phase 2 (the rest of the lawsuit).
