Original water company office, on Second Place
The Del Dios Mutual Water Company is a California nonprofit mutual benefit corporation, organized exclusively to supply to its member shareholders only, for cost and not for profit, water for domestic, irrigation and beneficial use. The company was incorporated in 1934, with much of the original system and pipeline excavated and built by volunteers. Since then the DDMWC has upgraded its wells, tank and pipeline, and has continually provided fresh, clean water to the residents of the community of Del Dios on the shores of Lake Hodges in San Diego County, California. The system is managed by a Superintendent, and a five-member Board of Directors is elected by a majority vote of shareholders each year.
