- Cental Mutual Water Company Consolidation
- The Central Mutual Water Company (CMWC) is a private water company serving approximately 30 homes and one commercial business (day-care center) just south of the City of Porterville. The unincorporated community is located near the intersection of W. Gibbons Avenue and S. Kessing Street and is surrounded by agricultural fields on all sides. The Central Mutual Water Company system consists of one well on the west side of South Kessing Street, south of Gibbons Avenue. The well is approximately 200 feet deep, equipped with a 15-horsepower submersible pump and produces approximately 180 gallons per minute (gpm). There is also an 1,800-gallon hydropneumatic tank on the same parcel as the well. The water distribution system includes two 6” steel water mains that run parallel for approximately 1,300 feet in a north-south alignment in S. Kessing Street. All service connections branch from these mains. There are 3 fire hydrants, 39 1-inch services, and one 2-inch water service. The CMWC well is failing, having been repaired intermittently over the past several years, with connection to the City of Porterville, this well will be abandoned. In order to accommodate the request for consolidation for CMWC, the City’s UDB/SOI will expand and the City will annex the CMWC community into the City.
