The Water Department provides administrative, engineering, water treatment, and maintenance support for the City's potable water treatment and distribution. Our stringent criteria and regulations ensure we meet or exceed all regulations set forth by the State Water Resources Control Board and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Water Department works with the community and local schools to provide education related to conservation and current rebate programs.
THE ENGINEERING DIVISION
The Engineering Division of the Vallejo Water Department works to manage and implement the Water Department's capital improvement program (CIP), consisting of the replacement and renewal of water assets in the City of Vallejo's water system, including tanks, reservoirs, pump stations, pipelines, dams, valves, and water treatment plant facilities. In addition, the Engineering Division provides engineering reviews for new development projects, and reviews projects from outside agencies that may affect the Water Department. The Engineering Division aids the Distribution, Facilities, and Operations divisions with their goals to safely and efficiently operate the water system; to help the City meet all Federal and State requirements; to protect public health, and to ensure the system meets the fire-flow needs of the City. The Division also aids in the management of the City's long-term water supply and in protecting the City's water rights for future generations.
The Department has recently passed new water rates, and has a new 5-Year CIP that significantly increases yearly investments in water infrastructure. These projects will consist mostly of water pipeline replacement and renewal, treatment plant upgrades, pump station improvements, and dam improvements.
