Critical Information to know about Milpitas’ Water System
The City of Milpitas Department of Public Works is dedicated to providing you, your family, your community and the businesses in our city high quality and reliable water and sewer service. We efficiently serve over 77,000 customers and we’re on the job 24/7.
Our water system in Milpitas is made up of underground pipes, pump stations, wells, valves, water tanks and reservoirs. Your water is treated water purchased from two water agencies—San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and Santa Clara Valley Water District—also known as our wholesale water agencies. Water from these agencies is delivered to us and then it goes through our pump stations and pipelines to your homes or businesses every day.
As our water infrastructure continues to age, leaks and failures begin to compromise the reliability of our water system. The City of Milpitas has hundreds of miles of water pipelines which are at or near the end of their useful life. It is critical to update and replace infrastructure to continually maintain a safe, efficient and reliable system.
