Water transfers

The March 8 public meeting regarding 2016 Sacramento Valley transfers is cancelled. Due to current water supply conditions, EBMUD is no longer moving forward with proposed 2016 transfers with Sacramento River Settlement Contractors.

EBMUD’s water transfer program secures dry-year water supplies through voluntary water transfers.

EBMUD plans to use the Freeport Regional Water Facility, a joint project of the Sacramento County Water Agency and EBMUD, to deliver transfer water to EBMUD’s service area. 

EBMUD continues to develop partnerships to purchase water in times of need from forward-thinking agencies. In 2014 and 2015, EBMUD purchased short-term water transfers to help meet customer demand during the drought.
