County Service Area 42 Oro Grande

About Oro Grande

The community of Oro Grande is situated in an unincorporated area five miles northwest of the city of Victorville.  It is within the boundaries of County Service Area 42 (CSA 42), a dependent special district governed by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.  The district was formed in 1965 when the Riverside Cement Company, who maintained the community of Oro Grande as a “Company Town”, sold the lands, parcels and homes to its workers.

The water supply for the community of Oro Grande is obtained through a system of four wells located along the Mojave River.  The water from these wells is pumped through transmission pipelines into the distribution system and stored in a 246,000 gallon tank. 

The main portion of the sewer system serving the community was constructed around 1924, in accordance with a plan set forth in 1924 by J. B. Lippincott of Los Angeles, California.  When the lands, parcels and homes were sold to the workers in 1965, the municipal type services were transferred to the county service area, but the cement company stayed within the boundaries to help continue the financing of services through its taxes.
