East Bay

EBMUD's 59,000 acres of beautiful watershed lands and reservoirs in the East Bay and Sierra Foothills protect water quality for EBMUD customers.

An oasis for wildlife and a lush haven for people, these lands offer many opportunities to explore and enjoy nature.

Explore East Bay watershed lands

In the East Bay, the shores of Lafayette Reservoir and San Pablo Reservoir offer great spots to picnic, walk, birdwatch, boat and fish. Along 80 miles of East Bay trails, hikers and horseback riders can soak in lake views and streams, redwoods, wildflowers and open grasslands.

Become a good steward

Outdoor education programs teach school kids what it takes to protect the environment and how drinking water fits into natural systems. Learn more about EBMUD's ongoing commitment to protect and manage watershed lands.

Take a tour or volunteer

Volunteer workdays offer the chance for you to help maintain trails and participate in habitat restoration projects. Find out about fun, educational events on our watershed lands.
