Application for Water Services
Apply for Standard Water Service
Applicants can request new domestic water service, and/or the construction of additional pipeline facilities to provide water service to a development.
Applicants for a private fire service for commercial and multi-family structures of five or more units must submit a "Fire Service Request for Available Flow and Pressure Information" form for the property to be served. EBMUD will perform a Maximum Day Demand Hydraulic Model Analysis of the water distribution system at the service location and provide flow and pressure information to guide fire service design. A $336 water service estimate fee must be paid upon submittal. A dual service for both domestic use and fire protection is required for single-family residences or duplexes. Other multi-family residences and commercial buildings require a separate fire service.
