How We Work

About Zone 7 Water Agency


Zone 7 provides excellent water and flood protection services because we believe our community deserves nothing less. We deliver high-quality drinking water that not only meets, but performs better than, regulatory standards. We invest in diversifying our water supply so our community can rely on us to provide the water they need. We invest in technology, infrastructure and highly trained staff to ensure the water we provide is safe and exceeds our water quality goals. We proactively manage 37 miles of flood channels to ensure homes, businesses and habitats are protected in the 425 square miles in our care.

As the Tri-Valley region’s water wholesaler, we work collaboratively with our water retailers in the City of Livermore, City of Pleasanton, the Dublin-San Ramon Services District and California Water Supply to ensure the people of Eastern Alameda County have exceptional water and flood protection services. Our team works to ensure our performance moves beyond compliance to excellence because that is what it means to be in Zone 7.
