WATER SYSTEM HISTORY
In 1954, the City of Hemet purchased the Lake Hemet Water Company water system, which consisted of two deep wells, one 1.5 million gallon (MG) reservoir and miscellaneous distribution systems in need of a maintenance and replacement program.  At that time, the boundaries of the City of Hemet and the area serviced by the City’s Water Department were approximately the same, 3,360 acres (5.25 square miles).  Since that time, the city limits have expanded, mostly to the south and west and now encompass 17,728 acres (27.7 square miles), while the City’s water service area has remained approximately the same.
