The Utilities Department of the City of Modesto was created July 1, 2014 as a service provider
responsible for the safe delivery of potable water, and the collection, treatment and environmentally-friendly
disposal of wastewater and stormwater.
We are a service-driven organization committed to building partnerships that promote a vibrant
business community and engaged neighborhoods with a culture of excellence where citizens get the best
and employees give their best.
The Utilities Department operates and maintains all City water, wastewater, and storm water systems
infrastructure, and oversees capital improvement projects, water resource planning, groundwater, surface water,
and recycled water initiatives, utility rates, and regional water partnerships.
