Sharing our member company success stories helping communities across California access safe and reliable drinking water.


“California American Water acquired Oxbow Marina Mutual Water Company in Sacramento to ensure its community receives safe and clean drinking water. Oxbow Marina, a large deluxe marina with boat slips and waterfront homes, is located on Georgiana Slough, which is a scenic waterway connecting the Sacramento River to the Mokelumne River near Walnut Grove and Highway 12. Historic difficulty complying with state and federal water standards has placed Oxbow under a requirement to upgrade its antiquated water system. The system will now be connected to California American Water’s system to improve drinking water quality and provide greater system reliability.” Read more.

The transfer, if approved by the California Public Utilities Commission, is not expected to result in interruptions to service.” Read more.
