How much does it cost to run the City’s water system?

The annual budget is approximately $35 million. This includes paying for major capital projects and staff. Water resources employees are needed to treat water supplies, maintain the distribution system, perform water quality tests, run the Water Conservation program, and manage water supplies for the benefit of the community. Example of capital projects include replacement of aging water mains, as well as the construction and rehabilitation of major water facilities such as the State Water Project, the Recycled Water Project, Cater Water Treatment Plant, and the Ortega Groundwater Treatment Plant.
