“Our state is in the midst of a relentless drought. But after a winter of dismal precipitation, the water supply prospects of the 1.3 million East Bay Municipal Utility District customers are in far better shape than during the last drought.
That’s thanks to the Freeport Regional Water Facility, the crucial investment our generation of ratepayers has made in water supply reliability.
For the first time in EBMUD’s history, severe drought may not lead to severe rationing.
EBMUD has been aggressively pursuing supplemental water supplies for decades. It was a proud moment in 2001 when EBMUD reached a historic accord that put aside years of legal and political battles and launched the cooperative regional project that today serves the Sacramento region and can deliver water in dry years to the East Bay.”
