The Story of Water Documentary (1938)

- This documentary from 1938 tells the EBMUD story from its beginning: the incredible construction of Pardee Dam, the first Mokelumne aqueduct, and early water treatment and distribution.

As we reflect on EBMUD's beginnings a century ago, this documentary film from our archives tells the story of the District's formation in 1923 and the incred...

- Our reservoirs are now 87% full. This time last year, we were 66% full. There's still time for more rain/snow this season, so keep that umbrella close. Meanwhile, we're refilling our primary reservoirs at 3,500 cubic feet per second. Feel the roar!

This.    Nice work, SJW.

Just turn the tap, and the miracle of fresh, clean water is yours, at any moment. And after you’ve finished, whatever goes down your drain is collected and treated before being released into San Francisco Bay.

Rainwater harvesting :: East Bay Municipal Utility District

All this rain made a real splash on EBMUD's water supply. Pardee Reservoir, our main source of drinking water, is now 98 percent full and there's more rain on the way. While we move that water to local reservoirs, you can store rainwater at home, too:

Rain is a renewable, free source of fresh water that can be harvested for a variety of purposes.

Yes, it's wet. But no, we can't say we're out of yet. The season's first snow survey shows this winter is off to a strong start. But we'll need more in the coming months to fully refill our reservoirs. In the meantime, keep irrigation off and stay safe!

DWR today conducted the first Phillips Station snow survey of the season. The manual survey recorded 55.5 inches of snow depth & a snow water equivalent of 17.5 inches, which is 177 percent of the January 3 average for this location.

But that's only 72 percent of the April 1 average for this location, and that's the key measurement. California is expected to see continued rain and snow over the next seven days, with the threat of flooding in parts of California.

Conditions so far this season have proven to be strikingly similar to last year when California saw some early rainstorms and strong December snow totals only to have the driest January through March on record.

👋 🎃 Is it time to say goodbye to your pumpkin? First, remove all decorations, stickers, and candles. Then, place your pumpkin in the compost bin for curbside collection to be turned into rich nutrients, or add it to your backyard compost bin for your garden.

Today, we extended an agreement with Contra Costa Water District and East Bay Municipal Utility District to potentially provide up to 10,000 acre-feet of water or more, depending on conditions, to help nearby communities impacted by the drought.

This agreement applies to water that is ALREADY being released into the Yuba River to benefit fish. It does not change the amount of water that local irrigators and fisheries receive. And, any revenue that we would receive is invested right back into Yuba County.

EBMUD uses turbines at Pardee and Camanche dams to generate hydropower. Most of that renewable electricity is used onsite. The rest is sold to the grid. This year, an increased market price is helping us get more bang for the buck. That's 😎 great news for EBMUD ratepayers.
