City of Redding UtilitiesThe Public Works Utilities are dedicated to providing our customers with reliable water, wastewater and storm drain services now and in the future.
What are the City Utilities?
The Storm Drain, Wastewater and Water Utilities are divisions of the Public Works department of the City of Redding. Redding Utilities provide reliable water, wastewater and storm drain services to approximately 90,000 Redding area residents. Two water treatment plants and over 500 miles of water pipe provide potable water to residents and businesses. Over 400 miles of sewer pipe and two wastewater treatment plants convey and treat wastewater from indoor sinks, toilets and drains at homes and businesses. Almost 400 miles of storm drain pipes and channels provide drainage for rainwater on our city streets to prevent flooding during the winter by carrying water to creeks and the Sacramento River.
