The City of Sacramento Department of Utilities recently implemented a new Temporary Water Use Policy.

This policy requires that all individuals who wish to use City water on a temporary basis, such as for construction or for water trucks:

  • Have a permit issued annually and any vehicles used to transport the water must be inspected annually.
  • Pay a deposit and be issued a City water meter and backflow device. The  deposit will be refunded upon return of the water meter and the backflow device and provided all monthly bills are paid.  
  • Be billed monthly for water usage. Customers will be based on the City's metered water rate.
