Built in 1935, the Orinda Water Treatment Plant—the heart of the EBMUD water distribution system—is undergoing bypass surgery. Every day, this plant delivers more than 120 million gallons of great water to 800,000 customers. It keeps our Mokelumne supply filtered, treated and flowing to your taps.
You flush and the water disappears. But do you know what happens after water from your toilet goes down the drain? Take a tour of EBMUD’s Wastewater Treatment Plant in Oakland. We offer free tours for East Bay residents and students in middle and high school. Our expert tour guides will reveal how we keep the San Francisco Bay clean by treating wastewater and how you can take steps to protect the environment. Hint: toss those not-so-flushable wipes and other items in the trash, not the toilet.
