    The Community Services District (CSD) is here to serve Big Bear City residents with quality services. We provide residents with over the phone support, easy billing, community maps, trash pick-up, water, sewer and a Board of Directors to oversee and interact with community members at large.
  • Keeping Our Water Clean

    Providing quality water to the customers of Big Bear City Community Services District is important to us. Our system is comprised of water mains, vertical wells, sealed springs, horizontal wells, and storage reservoirs. Details about where your water comes from, what it contains and how it compares to State standards is available in our Annual Water Quality Report.
  • Secure Trash Guidelines

    All improved properties within the District are provided household trash collection services. Please be sure your trash cans are set out for collection by 6:00 am the morning of regular weekly pickup. Legal containers may be plastic or galvanized. They must have handles, tight fitting lids, and be no more than 34 gallons, with a maximum filled weight of 60 pounds.

Call Or Click Before You Dig

Buried utilities can exist just about anywhere on your property - hence the importance of checking with DigAlert before digging. You can prevent damage to underground utilities and avoid service interruptions simply by filling out an online location request at DigAlert Express or by simply calling 811 two (2) business days prior to starting your excavation.

This is a 100% free service, and more importantly-it's the California state law.

"Water is overtaking oil as our scarcest natural resource in the world…"
-- Steven Solomon, author of “Water: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power, and Civilization.”
The Big Bear City Community Services District is the primary municipal source for potable water for Big Bear City and the eastern end of the Valley.  The CSD has historically delivered an average of 1,115 acre-feet of water per year to Big Bear City residents over the past 25 years.  For reference, an acre-foot of water is about 326,000 gallons; enough to supply an average Big Bear residential water connection for over 4 and a half years.  If it sounds like a lot of water, it is… but we do much better than other areas of the country, some of which use that much water in 18 months.
