Serving the Greater

Escondido Valley Since 1954

About Rincon Water

Rincon Del Diablo Municipal Water District (Rincon Water) is located in northern San Diego County within the greater Escondido Valley. Rincon Water’s facilities consist of a parent district, two water improvement districts, and a fire district.

Annexed into the San Diego County Water Authority and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California in 1954, for the purpose of securing additional water supplies, the District derived its name from Rancho Rincon del Diablo, once located in the general proximity. In 1843, the Rancho was not located within the auspice of Mission San Diego de Alcala. As such, it was considered to be “unblessed”, hence the Spanish translation, "the devil's corner," or "the devil's lurking place."

Today, Rincon Water customers are partially located within the cities of Escondido, San Marcos, and San Diego, and within various unincorporated areas of San Diego County. Rincon delivers potable and recycled water to a population of 30,000 through nearly 8,000 connections representing residential, agricultural, landscape, and commercial/industrial water users.
