Welcome to the Haines City Water Control District

The Haines City Water Control District (the District) was originally created as the Haines City Drainage District No. 1, Laws of Florida, Chapters 13649 (1929) and 14517 (1929). Currently, the District operates as an independent special district under Chapter 2004-402, Laws of Florida, and under Chapters 189 and 298, Florida Statutes.
