Water Resources

About the Water Resources Division

The Water Resources Department promotes public health and safety through thoughtful management of our water resources and greenspaces. We plan and promote for the efficient use of our drinking water and ensure the water you use is treated properly before it flows back out into the environment to be used again. We work on stormwater pipes and canals to protect the community from flooding and ask for your help to capture and reuse this resource on your property. We employ and care for a mighty urban forest of over 85,000 trees. This forest cleans our air, soaks up stormwater, reduces heat, and provides for our amazing urban wildlife.

Winter is a great time to:

Let your grass take a nap and save water.

Consider what native plants you will add to your yard this spring, possibly replacing exotic and invasive plants that wreak havoc on our local wildlife.

Plant a tree. 

Schedule septic system maintenance.
