Rainbow Water District entered into a contract to start assisting Deerhorn in January 2016. Rainbow processes monthly water bills and supports the Deerhorn operators with annual maintenance, repairs and troublehsooting.

The Deerhorn Community Water Association was established in 1968 as a cooperative corporation to serve water to a rural subdivision. Deerhorn's water system uses two wells and two storage reservoirs to serve 120 homes. Deerhorn employs 3 part-time operators to perform daily operations and maintenance.

The annual Association Membership Meeting is usually held at 7 pm on the second Monday of January. Board meetings are held as needed during the year.
