OMWD is a municipal water district organized and operating pursuant to Water Code Sections 71000 et seq., and was incorporated on April 9, 1959, to develop an adequate water supply for landowners and residents. On June 14, 1960, residents of OMWD voted to become a member of the San Diego County Water Authority, thus becoming eligible to purchase water transported into San Diego County via the massive aqueducts of SDCWA and its wholesaler, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. At over 48 square miles, OMWD serves approximately 84,000 customers in Encinitas, Carlsbad, San Diego, San Marcos, Solana Beach, and neighboring communities.

Our Parent Company
Sempra Energy is a San Diego-based Fortune 500 energy services holding company whose subsidiaries provide electricity, natural gas and value-added products and services.
San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Gas Co. are Sempra Energy’s regulated California utilities.
When five San Diegans met in the parlor of the Consolidated Bank on April 18, 1881, to incorporate the San Diego Gas Company, they formed a successful enterprise that would serve a fledgling city whose population had just passed 3,000. They quickly asked that the city trustees authorize the purchase of 25 street lamp posts, the first ones to be maintained for public use.
Over 130 years later, San Diego’s 99,000 plus street lights would serve the eighth largest city in the country. Could they have believed that their company’s gas customers would grow from an original 89 to 775,000 and electric customers from none to three million?
With 17,000 employees, the Sempra Energy companies develop energy infrastructure, operate utilities, and provide related products and services to more than 32 million consumers worldwide.
Review & Outlook
Sempra Energy is implementing a strategic growth plan focused upon its electric and gas utilities, natural gas infrastructure and renewable energy.
