The City of Sacramento Department of Utilities has been in service for more than 100 years. The department has grown as the city has grown and now serves more than 480,000 customers with a variety of critical services, including water, wastewater and storm drainage. 

Utilities delivers valuable services that aren’t obvious on a day-to-day basis. Beyond wastewater, activities include:

  • Regulatory compliance
  • Protecting water rights and quality
  • Responding to sanitary sewer overflows to prevent discharges of sewage to local creeks and rivers
  • Investment for future improvements
  • Maintaining adequate financial reserves to provide financing for long-term capital improvement projects

Current status of the City's wastewater projects can be found on the Wastewater Dashboard Summary.
