Rincon Water annexed into the San Diego County Water Authority and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California in 1954. Click here to see the Enabling Act from the State of California, Office of the Secretary of State. Incorporated for the purpose of securing additional water supplies, the District derives its name from Rancho Rincon del Diablo, once located in the general proximity. In 1843, the Rancho land grant 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 Water 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.
