Water Resources Department

WATER RESOURCES DEPARTMENT

tn Water HeartPomona today benefits from the decisions of forward-thinking farmers, landowners, and civic leaders in the past who secured underground water rights for the City of Pomona and managed such as a shared resource. Pomona receives over 3/4ths of its water from underground reservoirs, a precious natural resource derived from its location adjacent to the San Gabriel Mountains and Mount Baldy. The mission of the Water Resources Department is to protect and manage this natural resource for the people of the City of Pomona and to provide the cleanest water possible to the residents and businesses of Pomona.

Water Operations

  • The Water Operations Division provides safe, high quality water, and delivers this water upon demand in an efficient manner at a reasonable cost to residents and businesses within the City of Pomona.  The Division maximizes locally produced groundwater and locally collected surface water to minimize reliance on more expensive purchased water through the efforts of production, distribution and construction, water quality, and water treatment sections.

          Phone Number: 909-620-2255

Administration & Engineering

  • The Administration and Engineering program provides an overall administration, fiscal control, and interagency coordination with affiliates in the water industry, including the oversight for water quality, production, delivery, engineering designs, and the implementation of the City’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) programs, ensuring the effective and efficient operation of the water system.

Water Production

  • Maximize locally produced groundwater and locally collected surface water to minimize reliance on more expensive purchased water from Metropolitan Water District (MWD) and Three Valleys Municipal Water District (TVMWD) so that the highest quality water can be supplied upon demand to the City's customers in an effective and efficient manner at the least cost to the City.  Program activities include acquiring and storing sufficient quantities of high quality water and recycled water to serve residents and businesses.

Water Treatment

  • Operates and maintains the City's water treatment facilities, air stripping towers, anion exchange plants, and includes the inspection, repair and maintenance of plant equipment. Determine the optimum blending ratios of water in accordance with the California Department of Public Health (DPH). Determines proper dosage of chemicals to ensure that treatment objectives are met and that the delivered water is safe for consumption. These facilities process surface water and groundwater which allows Pomona to provide water at a much lower rate.

Public Health Goals Report

Provisions of the California Health and Safety Code 116470 (b) specify that water utilities with 10,000 or more service connections are required to prepare a special report by July 1, 2019, if water quality measurements have exceeded any Public Health Goals (PHGs).  PHGs are non-enforceable goals established by the California Environmental Protection Agency’s (Cal-EPA) Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA).  The law also requires that where OEHHA has not adopted a PHG for a constituent, water suppliers are to use the Maximum Contaminant Level Goals (MCLGs) adopted by United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).  Only constituents which have a California primary drinking water standard, also known as Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL), and for which either a PHG or MCLG has been set are to be addressed.

This report provides information required by law of constituents detected in the City’s water supply between 2016 and 2018 at levels exceeding the applicable PHG or MCLG.  Included is the numerical public health risk associated with the MCL and the PHG or MCLG, the category or type of risk to health that could be associated with the constituent, the best treatment technology available that could be used to reduce the constituent level, and an estimate of the cost to install that treatment, if it is appropriate and feasible.
