Field Services consist of various departments that serve both water and water reclamation functions:
  • Construction and Maintenance 
  • Pumps / Motors
  • Fleet and Facilities
  • Meter Repair and Automated Meter Reading Systems (AMR)

The District is currently performing a system wide upgrade to the hardware devices that automaticaly read the meter and report the usage data. The upgraded Automated Meter Reading System will allow Rancho California Water District (District) to provide additional usage information to our customers and lower the maintenance costs associated with the existing AMR network. The device upgrade is being done for the District by Concord Utility Services and will not cause any service disruption to our customers. The job is estimated to be completed sometime in early 2015.
