Trusted, Quality Service Since 1905.jpg

Established in 1905, the San Bernardino Municipal Water Department (SBMWD) was created as a municipal utility by the City of San Bernardino Charter and is governed by a five-member Water Board appointed by the Mayor and City Council.  The SBMWD water service area is approximately 45 square miles, and SBMWD provides potable water and wastewater collection and treatment services to approximately 200,000 persons in the City of San Bernardino and unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County. In addition, SBMWD provides sewer treatment and wastewater services to the residents and ratepayers of the City of Loma Linda, East Valley Water District and the City of Colton.  


For over a century, SBMWD has been committed to delivering trusted, quality service to its residents and ratepayers. It is their mission to meet the needs of the community by providing sustainable, high-quality water supply and wastewater services in the most professional, environmentally responsible, and cost-effective manner possible.
