Flushing pipelines may seem wasteful during drought, but it's actually critical to ensuring water quality. Recently, EBMUD crews found a way to irrigate Lar Rieu Park in #WalnutCreek with water used to flush newly installed pipes. Thanks City of Walnut Creek - City Hall for supporting our re-use efforts. What are YOU doing on #WaterWednesday to save 💦?

The East Bay Municipal Utility District condemns the anti-Asian violence that has occurred in Oakland Chinatown and across the country. With our EBMUD offices headquartered in Oakland Chinatown, we have a history of supporting our Asian American partners and it is painful to see our neighbors living in fear.

Racism toward the Asian American community is not new. Asian Americans have faced discrimination since arriving in this country, yet they have influenced the community that we all enjoy today. Chinese laborers built the infrastructure that brought some of the first water supplies to the East Bay. Today, EBMUD’s diverse workforce includes Asian Americans who are on the frontlines serving the public during the pandemic.

At EBMUD, responding to hate and racism a priority. That is why we have launched a Racial Equity and Justice project following the tragic killing of George Floyd and are embarking on a new Diversity Equity and Inclusion Strategic Plan. We are committed partners in the fight to end racism, hatred and intolerance.

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.
