How many gallons of water do you use in a typical day? More than 90 percent of EBMUD customers say they either don’t know or estimate they use less than 30 gallons a day, according to a recent survey. In fact, the average East Bay customer uses around 50 gallons a day for drinking, cooking, bathing, dishwashing and laundry. (That doesn’t even take outdoor watering into account.)
It's EBMUD’s 100th Birthday!

We make sure every drop is delicious, and when water goes down your drain, we remove the dirty stuff to protect the environment and the San Francisco Bay.
