EBMUD’s water supply begins at the Mokelumne River watershed in the Sierra Nevada and extends 90 miles to the East Bay. The Urban Water Management Plan helps EBMUD ensure a reliable water supply for the next generation, which includes making the best use of limited supplies through water conservation and recycling and developing long-term projects.
Current Water Supply Outlook
With our reservoirs refilling and water supply projections sufficient to meet demand, EBMUD ended its drought emergency on May 10, 2016. Because of investments in conservation, recycling and supplemental supplies, EBMUD and our customers rose to the challenge to meet the East Bay’s water needs during a historic four-year drought.
