Water treatment plant

Relics Out. Reliability In.  The Sacramento River Water Treatment Plant opened in 1924. Much has changed in Sacramento since then, but the treatment plant still provides high-quality drinking water for the city. To better serve the city, the plant is currently undertaking its first upgrades in nearly 100 years. The City is inviting the public to see a part of Sacramento’s history and learn how Sacramento manages water by combining old infrastructure with new technologies to protect the environment and safety of residents.
