Application for water services

Applicants can request new domestic water service, and/or the construction of additional pipeline facilities to provide water service to a development.

Apply for fire service

Applicants requiring a dedicated private fire service for commercial and multi-family structures must submit a "Fire service request for available flow and pressure information" form for the property to be served. EBMUD will perform a Maximum Day Demand Hydraulic Model Analysis of the water distribution system at the service location and provide flow and pressure information to guide fire service design. A water service estimate fee must be paid upon submittal.
