Bonita Creek Water Company Re-Established 1991

It was around 1956-1957 that Bonita Creek Community was founded. The Bonita Creek Water Company was re-established in 1991 after the Dude fire.  The natural spring that forms Bonita Creek comes from the Mogollon Rim escarpment and flows two miles down the canyon into the community.  Here it is purified, stored and ready for delivery to our water customers.
