In recognition of National Preparedness Month, Contra Costa Water District reaffirms our unwavering commitment to ensuring the reliability and resilience of our water supply infrastructure. As water service providers, we understand the critical role water plays in the everyday lives of our community members. CCWD continually invests in projects that safeguard the availability of high-quality water while also preparing us for potential emergencies, including natural disasters like earthquakes and landslides.
The Contra Costa Canal is not just an ordinary waterway; it is the lifeblood of our water system. Every drop of water served by CCWD flows through this critical facility. This canal, which spans over 48 miles, has been a cornerstone of our community's water supply for decades.
One of our most significant recent initiatives is the Canal Replacement Project, a $27 million investment located near Oakley. This project stands as a testament to our dedication to water reliability, water quality improvement, and the safety of those we serve. It represents an important step in securing a vital conveyance facility that plays a pivotal role in our water system.
