California American Water has completed the acquisition of Oxbow Marina Mutual Water Company, a California based water services provider.
According to the terms of the agreement, approved by California Public Utilities Commission, California American Water will offer state-regulated potable water service to its new customers.
The Oxbow Marina system, consisting of boat slips and waterfront homes, is situated on Georgiana Slough and is one mile from the Isleton system of Sacramento District.
