Olympic Valley Public Service District serves the community of Olympic Valley in Eastern Placer County, California, 7 miles northwest of Lake Tahoe and 40 miles southwest of Reno. This District, consisting of a 10 square mile valley (6,300 acres), was formed on March 30, 1964 under the provisions of Division 12 of the Water Code. 

The Olympic Valley Public Service District provides drinking water, wastewater collection, solid waste, bike trail snow removal, fire protection and emergency medical services. The District is governed by a five-member Board of Directors elected for four-year terms and employs about 30 people. The District is funded through service fees and property taxes.

Olympic Valley was the site of the 1960 Olympic Winter Games. The original wells and pipes in the Valley were built by the State of California to support the games and many of these original facilities are still in use today. Olympic Valley’s primary industry is winter snow sports and related services although the area is a major tourist destination during any season. Year-round population in the Valley is estimated to be approximately 1,000 people, with a maximum overnight population of approximately 7,000. During peak winter holiday periods, the daily population can swell to 25,000.
