Welcome to the Deep Bay Improvement District
The Deep Bay Improvement District (DBID) is a local government authority responsible for providing Waterworks and Fire Protection to properties within the district's boundaries.  The DBID was incorporated by Letters Patent, originally as the Deep Bay Waterworks District, on March 10, 1972. 
The DBID is governed by a board of elected trustees (elected by area property owners) one of whom acts as chair (as elected by the Board).  Our board members are all volunteers.
DBID Boundary Map is available here.

What's New...
December 8, 2016:

It has come to our attention that some rate payers in the Deep Bay Improvement District are experiencing a residual chlorine taste and/or smell in their water.   

There has been no chlorine or treatment of any kind added to the system since the required treatment in mid-October.  Our operator has investigated this morning and it would appear that there were some pockets of chlorinated water left in the reservoir after the shock treatment in October.

Due to the power outage yesterday, the reservoir was drawn down lower than usual which resulted in this residual entering the distribution system.

Our operator is currently working on flushing out this residual from the distribution system but users may continue to experience some taste or smell in their water for the next few days depending on where they are in the system.

Thank you for your understanding.
