Director of Water Utilities
Water Treatment Plant Supervisor
Water Treatment Plant:
This division is responsible for the maintenance and twenty-four-hour-a-day operation of the City’s 32 million gallon-per-day water treatment plant, 7 pump stations and 8 drinking water storage reservoirs. The Water Treatment Plant ensures that the water distributed by the City is of the highest quality possible and meets or exceeds all State and Federal health standards. Each year a report is published on the quality of water delivered by Contra Costa Water District to the cities of Antioch, Pittsburg, Martinez and Diablo Water District in Oakley per the direction of the Department of Public Health and the US Environmental Protection Agency. "In 2011, the treated drinking water delivered to your home met all drinking water standards set by the
state and federal governments." To see a copy of the report, click on the Annual Water Quality Report 2011 (PDF).
Water treatment staff also maintain and operate two municipal wells, eight reservoirs and seven pumping stations. Water treatment staff are located at the City’s Water Treatment Plant, 300 Olympia Drive.
Water Conservation: Water is a precious and limited resource. There are many programs and resources available to help homes and businesses conserve water. The City has created a conservation page with excellent tips, resources, and links to rebates to assist you in conserving water which will also save you money. As a partner agency with Contra Costa Water District(CCWD), Pittsburg water customers are eligible for all CCWD Water Conservation Programs.
Recycled Water: Recycled water, which is also referred to as water reclamation and water reuse, is the practice of reusing highly treated wastewater for other beneficial purposes. The City became a beneficiary of this resource when a large recycled water plant was built at Delta Diablo Sanitation District (DDSD). At DDSD, waste water is treated into recycled water which is used for purposes such as landscape irrigation and cooling processes at industrial facilities.
