Learn About Your Water Quality 

The City remains committed to delivering safe
and reliable drinking water to our customers. Read our
Annual Water Quality Report to learn about where your
water comes from, COVID-19 response, wastewater
treatment, and water quality testing.

Pouring fats, oils, and grease (FOG) down the drain or garbage disposal creates serious problems like pipe blockage and sewer overflows. When washed down the sink, FOG can stick to the inside of sewer pipes (both on your property and under the streets). Dispose of fats, oils, and grease properly using the tips on our website

The City is developing a plan called Water Vision Santa Barbara for a resilient, reliable, affordable, and environmentally safe water plan that will serve our community long into the future. Join a full line up of virtual activities this October to help inform our community's Water Vision, express your concerns, and get your questions answered by City staff.
