Where Our Water Comes From
About 95% comes from the Russian River. The City of Santa Rosa purchases most of the City’s drinking water from Sonoma Water. Sonoma Water collects naturally filtered drinking water from deep wells along the Russian River and delivers it the City through underground aqueducts (large pipes) that connect to the City of Santa Rosa’s water system. The City also uses its own groundwater wells to help meet demand, especially during during hot, dry summer months.
Where Our Water Goes
After water is used by homes and businesses and captured in the City's sewer collection system it is conveyed to the City's Laguna Treatment Plant that produced recycled water and biosolids that are beneficially reused.
