Fruitvale Judgment and Decree

Post January 16, 2019

The Fruitvale Judgment and Decree (The City of San Jacinto, et
al., v. Fruitvale Mutual Water Company, et al., No. 51546,
Riverside County) was entered into Book 72, Page 164, of
Judgment, Riverside County, on June 4, 1954. EMWD, as successor
in interest to Fruitvale Mutual Water Company, is subject to the
provisions of the Judgment and Decree.

As a result of the Judgment and Decree, the Fruitvale Mutual
Water Company was ordered to prepare an annual report describing
the actual number of acre feet of water pumped from the Canyon
Basin and the actual number of acre feet pumped from the “Entire
Basin” and transported out of the “Entire Basin.” EMWD took over
the preparation of the report when it acquired Fruitvale in 1972.
