The California Pines Community Services District (CSD) is located west of Alturas in Modoc County. The California Pines CSD was formed in 1969 to serve the needs of the California Pines Subdivision. The subdivided area included 10,700+ acres but the District included 24,700+ acres. Additional land was annexed to the District in 1970 and 1975 so that the District now includes approximately 80 square miles. The District serves a population of approximately 350 people. There are 11,000+ lots in the hill units and additional vacant lots in the lake units so that the CSD could have a potential population of over 35,000. The California Pines CSD overlaps with both the Canby Fire Protection District and the Alturas Rural Fire Protection District. The California Pines CSD funds a fire station in the lake units. Cal Pines CSD has an automatic aid agreement with the Canby FPD.
