Russian River Water Supply TOUR

Tour the Source for
 600,000 Water Users
Saturday, September 17 & Saturday, October 15, 9am - Noon

The Sonoma County Water Agency (Water Agency) invites the public to attend one of two FREE half day tours of the Russian River water supply system. Tour participants will visit Water Agency facilities that divert, pump and treat the drinking water delivered to more than 600,000 residents in portions of Sonoma and Marin counties. These facilities will include the inflatable rubber dam on the Russian River, fish ladders, infiltration ponds and groundwater pumping plants.

“Turning on the tap will never be the same after attending the Water Agency’s water supply tour,” said Water Agency Chairman Efren Carrillo. “The tour offers a behind the scenes look into how our drinking water supply relies on a unique system of reservoirs, creeks and one of the largest groundwater pumping plants in the world.”

Space on the tour is limited and will be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis. To reserve a seat, complete the online tour registration form at
