Did you know that Contra Costa Water District provides water for more than 500,000 people? On average, we treat nearly 40 million gallons of water per day to be used for drinking and washing, growing lawns and food, filling swimming pools and putting out fires.

Water Facts

  • Tap water costs about a penny per gallon.
  • Tap water is required to meet strict health requirements to ensure it is clean and safe to drink.
  • About half of all residential water use is outdoors.

Think about it... How would your life be different without tap water?
