Water-everyone needs it. But where does your water come from?

The water EID treats and distributes to customers starts out as snowpack, high in the Sierra mountain range. As the snow melts, the water flows into various watersheds and into reservoirs like Jenkinson Lake and Folsom Lake. But before it gets to your tap, that water needs to be treated to strict state and federal standards.

Filtration and chlorination are just a couple of the steps needed to ensure that safe drinking water courses through the District’s complex distribution system to homes and businesses in your neighborhood.
