Special Districts

The Vista Irrigation District is an independent special district formed under the Irrigation District Act to provide water service. Special districts are the most direct link to government for many Californians, yet few people understand special districts’ work and history within the community.  Independent special districts are formed to provide a service such as water, sewer or fire protection.  Each has an elected board of directors that holds public meetings, much like a city council.

You can also find out if there are other special districts serving your community by using the California Special Districts Association Mapping program.
