The East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) supplies water and provides wastewater treatment for parts of Alameda and Contra Costa counties on the eastern side of San Francisco Bay in Northern California. EBMUD is a publicly owned utility formed under the Municipal Utility District Act passed by the California Legislature in 1921.
The Act permits formation of multipurpose government agencies to provide public services on a regional basis. In accordance with the Act's provisions, voters in the area created EBMUD in 1923 to provide water service.
Our Mission: To manage the natural resources with which the District is entrusted; to provide reliable, high quality water and wastewater services at fair and reasonable rates for the people of the East Bay; and to preserve and protect the environment for future generations.
