EBMUD, established by a vote of the people in 1923, has a proud history of providing high-quality drinking water for 1.3 million customers in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The District's award-winning wastewater treatment protects San Francisco Bay and services 650,000 customers.
From Pardee Reservoir and through a web of pipes and facilities, EBMUD supplies mountain water to East Bay customers. Every day of the year, EBMUD treats wastewater before it is discharged to the bay. The District recycles water, produces energy from waste and works with residents and businesses to keep pollutants from reaching the bay.
EBMUD's water service area spans 332-square miles in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, north to Crockett and south to San Leandro. EBMUD's wastewater service area covers 88-square miles along the San Francisco Bay's eastern shore from Richmond to San Leandro.
EBMUD has a publicly elected seven-member
Board of Directors. Under the direction of the Board and General Manager, EBMUD staff works 24/7 to ensure operations run smoothly - from maintaining the complex water and wastewater systems, to serving customers, to protecting watershed lands.
