Water is the driving force of all nature.
— Leonardo da Vinci      

The Russian River County Water District is a public water system established under the Water Code of the State of California. It provides fresh, safe, high-quality water for both domestic use and fire protection to just over 1,200 Forestville households nestled along the Russian River in western Sonoma County, California.

Governed by a five-member elected board of directors, the district strives to manage the community’s natural water resources in a sustainable way for future generations while protecting public health and well-being, along with fire protection, at a fair and reasonable price.

Outdoors
