About Us

Mission Statement

The Cambria Community Services District (CCSD) provides water, wastewater treatment, solid waste disposal, fire protection services, street lighting services, and supports related community services such as parks, transit and operation of the Cambria Veterans’ Memorial Building. 

We seek to provide such services professionally, productively, and fairly, keeping in mind Cambria’s unique history and character together with the challenges of the present and the future.


The Moonstone Cove CSD (officially Cambria CSD) was formed originally in 1966 and expanded in 1976 following a reorganization that dissolved Cambria County Water District (formed in 1959), Cambria Fire Protection District (originally formed as the Hope Volunteer Fire formed in 1877 and changed to Cambria Fire in 1933), Cambria Garbage Disposal District (formed in 1959), Cambria Lighting District (formed in 1959) and County Service Area No. 6 (which took over the lighting district in 1967). In 1976, Cambria Community Services District was formed. This facilitated the expansion of CCSD services to include water, wastewater, fire protection, lighting, refuse, and Parks, Recreation, and Open Space. The CCSD is governed by a five-member board of directors elected by Cambria voters for four-year overlapping terms.

Special Districts

Sphere of Influence Update & Municipal Service Review

A special district is a very basic form of local governments, special to the state of California. There are approximately 2,300 independent special districts in California. When residents or landowners want new services or higher levels of existing services, they can form a special district to pay for and administer them.

The Cambria Community Services District is primarily funded by utility fees augmented by a small amount of property tax revenue. Today, there are three independent special districts in Cambria: The Cambria Community Services District, Cambria Healthcare District, and Cambria Cemetery District.

CSDA, in partnership with California CAD Solutions, is proud to present the most comprehensive, interactive map ( of independent special districts in California. CSDA’s goal is to have every special district headquarters and boundary lines represented on the map.
