Imagine a Day Without Water is a national education campaign that brings together diverse stakeholders to highlight how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment. 

Have you ever wondered how water from our rivers gets turned into clean, safe, great-tasting drinking water that is delivered to your home or business? Virtual tours, webinars and educational videos will help the community understand how the City of Sacramento’s Department of Utilities produces more than 100 million gallons of water daily and invests millions of dollars to ensure safe and reliable supplies of water by upgrading pipes, technology and treatment plants. Get a chance to virtually tour our modern water infrastructure, as well as the original water treatment structures from 1921.

Discover how water gets to your faucet, how water meters work, how our drainage system works and learn about the vast 1,700 miles of water pipe systems in the Sacramento community. Gain insight into our sustainability efforts, how to conserve water, how to track your water usage, how we maintain our water infrastructure and much more in the webinar sessions and educational videos offered (links available on October 21, 2020):
