The Water Resources Division is responsible for the operation, maintenance and periodic replacement of the City’s water, sewer and storm drain systems. It operates and maintains the Livermore Water Reclamation Plant, which provides wastewater treatment and disposal for residents and businesses, as well as supplying recycled water for landscape irrigation and other uses. The Water Resources Division also provides drinking water to about one-third of the City by operating and maintaining a water distribution system and a series of storage reservoirs around the City. The Division is also responsible for maintaining over 500 miles of sewer and storm drain collection system piping, which carries wastewater to the treatment plant and floodwaters away from homes and businesses and into local creeks and streams.
