Water Walks


To celebrate 100 years of delivering high-quality drinking water while protecting precious natural resources, we invite you to explore some of our scenic reservoirs and breathtaking watersheds in a series of guided walks. Join us for East Bay watershed walks and learn about EBMUD’s fascinating history and the work we’re doing today.
