The Wild Wings County Service Area (CSA 15) was established in May of 2004 to provide water and sewer services (map of the district). The Wild Wings CSA operates the only County-run Wastewater Treatment Plant which is fully self-sustained and complies with mandatory state regulations. The CSA also operates the corresponding Water System.
In March 2009, the Wild Wings CSA acquired the Wild Wings Golf Club. The golf course is managed for the CSA by KemperSports, a leader in the golf course management industry with over 30 years of experience. For more information on the golf course, the contract with KemperSports and discounts for residents, select link in left menu.
The Wild Wings CSA is governed by the Yolo County Board of Supervisors and the policies and procedures of the County of Yolo, and is advised by the Wild Wing CSA Advisory Committee. The Wild Wings CSA Recreation/Golf Advisory Subcommittee advises on golf course activities. Those interested in service on an advisory committee can apply here. Services provided in the Wild Wings CSA are coordinated through the CSA Administrative Support Team which can be reached at YoloCSA@yolocounty.org or (530) 666-8153 for more information concerning the Wild Wings CSA.

Urgent Water Supply Notice: Wild Wings water supply is at the critical low level and as such, we ask all residents to immediately take measures to conserve water. As most of the community’s water is utilized for landscaping, adhering to the outdoor watering schedule will help. During the months of September and October, please water only on Sundays and Wednesdays, prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 8:00 p.m., for no more than 12 minutes per station. For more information on water conservation, link here.
Please do your part to ensure your community continues to have adequate supplies of water for drinking and fire suppression.
Status of Wells as of 08/17/18 NEW
Canvas Back Well – used for golf course irrigation only as it has higher levels of arsenic
- The well is 425-feet deep below the ground elevation
- The pump bowls are set at 220-feet below ground elevation
- The standard shutoff elevation above the bowls is 30-feet, which corresponds to an elevation of 190-feet (this is the elevation that the pump normally turns off at as the water is too low in the well)
- The static water level this week is at 170-feet below ground level
- When the pump comes on full force, the water drops about 44-feet to an elevation of about 214-feet below ground which is within the standard shutoff zone and just 6-feet above the bowls
- This well is currently in the critical zone for pumping water to the golf course
What we are doing:
- Cutting back the flow of the Canvas Back well so that it doesn’t drop the water level so low in the well when the pump comes on
- The golf course has cut their watering from a typical amount of as much as 378,000 gallons a day (last year during the summer) to an average of about 232,000 gallons per day which is a 38% reduction in water use
- No ornamental ponds on the golf course will receive supplemental ground water for the rest of the summer
Pintail Well – used for all Wild Wings homes, yards, community swimming pool and common area landscaping on the medians:
- The well is 1,084-feet deep below ground level
- The pump bowls are set at 270-feet below ground level
- The standard shutoff is 30-feet above the bowls which corresponds to an elevation of 240-feet (this is the elevation where the pump normally turns off as the water is too low in the well)
- The static water level this week is 173.5-feet (again, this is the elevation where the water is in the well when all the pumps are off)
- When the pump comes on, the water drops about 51-feet to an elevation of about 224.5-feet below ground; this is 15.5-feet above the shutoff zone
- Between May and June of this year, the water level in Pintail dropped 10-feet in one month. From the end of June to this week the water has dropped another 14.5 feet. At this rate we will be at the shut off level within the next several weeks. We are in the critical zone for the well.
What we are doing:
- Cutting the irrigation back on the median landscaping
- Shutting off the showers at the swimming pool
- Requesting that all residents start conserving water. The majority of water is used outdoors and lawn areas are typically receive the most. Residents are strongly encouraged to strictly follow the outdoor watering schedule available here.
Water/Sewer Issues: call SUSP at (916) 283-8520 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: SUSP (Specialized Utility Services Program - link here for contract) is responsible for water lines from the street to the water meter (green box at the base of your property). Homeowners are responsible for the pipe, the remainder of water lines from the meter box to the house and all other irrigation lines on their property. Unless due to a leak coming from pipe SUSP is responsible for, homeowners are responsible for flooded meter boxes (typically due to leaks in irrigation systems or from overwatering lawns) and may be asked to take corrective action to rectify the situation and/or be directly charged for further equipment replacement. Should your water usage statement seem high, turn off all water and check to see if the wheel is still turning on your water meter (found in the green box at the base of your property). If it is, SUSP will check to ensure there is not a leak on the County side. Issues on the County side will be addressed by SUSP; issues on the property owner's side will need to be addressed by the property owner and likely a private plumber.
