CMUA’s membership ranks continue to grow after the City of Lompoc recently rejoined CMUA as a water and energy utility member.

Lompoc’s city-owned electricity department, established in 1923, serves nearly 15,000 customers in the Central Coast region of California. Lompoc’s electric energy is delivered over high-voltage transmission lines owned by PG&E. Lompoc also is an owner in shares of NCPA’s power generation.

Water from the Lompoc Plain Basin is pumped from 10 groundwater wells located throughout the city. This basin is fed by Santa Ynez River water, irrigation return flow and rainfall. Lompoc has approximately 9,600 domestic water service connections. In 2019, 3.6 million gallons per day of clean drinking water was produced via the Lompoc Water Treatment Plant.

Lompoc is located in Santa Barbara County along the coast of California, between Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo.

With the addition of the City of Lompoc, CMUA now represents 72 publicly owned electric utilities and water agencies statewide.
