A Brief History of Del Oro Water Company
Del Oro Water Company was established in 1963 to meet the water needs of the Paradise Pines area in Magalia, California. Since then, we have grown throughout California. We currently provide service to four districts in Butte County; the Paradise Pines District, serving nearly 12,000 customers; the Lime Saddle District near Lake Oroville, serving approximately 900 customers; the Magalia District, serving nearly 700 customers; and the Stirling Bluffs District, serving approximately 400 customers in Stirling City.
