{{#badges: ToxicSludge}} The East Bay Municipal Utility District provides drinking water and wastewater collection and treatment to the communities of the East Bay in northern California's Bay Area. EBMUD is a principle member of Bay Area Clean Water Agencies.

Involvement in San Francisco Sludge Controversy

In April 2010, EBMUD sent a letter of support to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission in favor of its sewage sludge compost giveaway program.[1] In the letter, EBMUD said "Biosolids composting provides an effective and safe approach to reusing a valuable resource with local community benefits."
