Municipal Utilities Department 

The Municipal Utilities Department (MUD) is responsible for the operations of three utilities important to everyday life: water, wastewater, and stormwater.  You might not think about your clean drinking water source or where the water goes when you flush a toilet — but we do.

 

At MUD, we are committed to protecting the environment and providing the community with:

  • A stormwater system that decreases the risk of street flooding
  • Disposal of carefully treated wastewater
  • Education on water conservation and pollution prevention
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Projects to improve the quality of our waterways, lakes, and Delta
  • Safe drinking water
  • Quality customer service

Work performed by MUD is in accordance with applicable regulations and responsible business practices. A Quarterly Operations Report (QOR) is prepared that details department operations. 

 

Visit Utility Services to learn more about the following:

  • Water, wastewater, and stormwater utility services (residents and businesses)
  • Permit requirements and regulations
  • Fee calculators

  • Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) Program)

 

The Regional Wastewater Control Facility is a 24/7 operation that treats residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional wastewater throughout the City and parts of the surrounding County. Tours are available, along with bird watching in our wetlands. Read more on the Regional Wastewater Control Facility - Plant Tours and Birdwatching page.
