Galisteo Mutual Domestic Water Consumers Association

The non-profit Galisteo MDWCA manages the historic village water delivery system. Before its formation in 1961, water had been hauled up from Galisteo Creek in wagons. A donation by resident Phil McKee provided a well and pump house, and, with work by the people of Galisteo, the water system was completed early in 1962. As of 2023, the Galisteo MDWCA system serves 73 members with 85 hookups. 

The Galisteo MDWCA Board meets quarterly at the Galisteo Community Center.
