#WaterWednesday #conservation tip: 5-min of shower time = 10 gallons of water use. Timing your shower to a 5-min song like "Truckin" by Grateful Dead, helps save millions of gallons per day. "Together more or less in line, just keep truckin on." More at ebmud.com/drought

Our Story

The East Bay Municipal Utility District has a proud history of providing high-quality drinking water for 1.4 million customers in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, extending from Crockett in the north, southward to San Lorenzo, eastward from San Francisco Bay to Walnut Creek, and south through the San Ramon Valley. The District’s award-winning wastewater treatment protects San Francisco Bay and serves 685,000 customers, along the Bay’s east shore, extending from Richmond in the north to Oakland in the south.

EBMUD was formed under the California Municipal Utility District Act, which permits formation of multi-purpose government agencies to provide public services on a regional basis. In 1923, voters elected to create EBMUD to provide regional water service. In 1944, voters elected to authorize EBMUD to provide regional wastewater treatment.

EBMUD is led by a Board of Directors whose seven members are publicly elected from wards within the water service area.
