Rainbow Water District entered into a contract to start assisting the Deerhorn Community Water Association in January 2016. Rainbow processes monthly water bills and provides the state-licensed operator responsible for overall water system operation. Rainbow supports Deerhorn operators with maintenance, repairs and troublehsooting.
The Deerhorn Community Water Association was established in 1968 as a nonprofit 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 held at 7 pm on a Monday of January. Board meetings are held as needed during the year.
