In December, California American Water (CAW) signed an agreement to purchase the operating assets of Dunnigan Water Works (DWW), an investor-owned Class D water utility serving Yolo County.
The acquisition will add 253 water and wastewater service connections to CAW’s Sacramento-area customer base, which currently provides services to approximately 60,000 homes and businesses in Sacramento and Placer counties.
“As a result of this acquisition, Dunnigan customers will soon have access to expanded customer services,” said CAW’s Director of Northern California Operations S. Audie Foster. “Our services include a 24-hour customer service center, web self-service, paperless billing, water efficiency programs and rebates and our H2O Help to Others Program, which provides Low Income Rate Assistance to seniors on low fixed incomes and to families facing financial hardships.”
DWW owner Mel Smith concurred, “This is a positive move forward for the community of Dunnigan.”
