Highland, CA

East Valley Water District is a County District formed in 1954 through an election by local residents who wanted water service by a public agency. Originally called the East San Bernardino County Water District, the name was changed to East Valley Water District in 1982.

The district was originally formed to provide domestic water service to the unincorporated and agricultural-based communities of Highland and East Highlands. Later, as the population increased, the need for a modern sewer system to replace existing septic tanks became apparent. The residents voted to give East Valley Water District the responsibility for their sewer system, as they did earlier with their water service.

Over the years, some of the district's service area was annexed to the City of San Bernardino. Water service remained with the District, however.
