General Information

Public Works operates County Service Area No. 7 (CSA 7) to provide potable water to approximately 70 customers in the La Honda community.  The water system also supplies two County facilities: Camp Glenwood Boys Ranch and Sam McDonald Park.

The CSA 7 water system is comprised of an intake and pump in Alpine Creek, a Water Treatment Plant, a 500,000-gallon storage tank and a distribution system. The Treatment Plant was constructed in the early 1990’s to meet Federal and State water quality requirements. Portions of the distribution system date back to the 1920’s, when the area was primarily a place for summer homes for affluent San Franciscans.
