The Municipal Utilities Department (MUD) provides clean water to more than 50,000 residential and commercial connections in north and south Stockton.

The City treats and distributes water from the following sources:

  • Surface water diverted from the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta
  • Surface water from the Mokelumne River purchased from Woodbridge Irrigation District
  • Local groundwater from wells owned and operated by the City
  • Treated water purchased from the Stockton East Water District (SEWD), imported from the New Melones (Stanislaus River) and New Hogan (Calaveras River) Reservoirs

Delta Water Treatment Plant

The Delta Water Treatment Plant (DWTP) began operation in May 2012, and provides up to 30 million gallons per day of treated surface water from the San Joaquin Delta and Mokelumne River. The water treatment plant also:

  • Replaces declining surface water sources,
  • Protects groundwater supplies, and
  • Provides for current and future water needs.

The DWTP was awarded a Gold LEED for energy use, lighting, water, material use, and other sustainable strategies.
