Water and Wastewater

For more than 90 years, the City of Redlands has been in charge of providing high quality drinking water to the Redlands and Mentone areas.

More than 75,000 residents in Redlands, Mentone, parts of Crafton Hills and San Timoteo Canyon, and a small part of San Bernardino depend on Redlands Municipal Utilities & Engineering Department to provide water service to their homes and businesses. By supplying a blend of local groundwater, local surface water, and imported water from the State Water Project, Redlands Municipal Utilities & Engineering Department is able to meet the daily demands of these customers.

Utilities Advisory Committee

Chapter 3.41 of the City of Redlands Municipal Code requires water and wastewater utility rates to be reviewed bi-annually by a Utility Advisory Committee (UAC). The primary goal of the UAC is to recommend water and wastewater rates for all utility customers based upon the cost of service and are in compliance with all state and federal laws. The UAC is comprised of 7 volunteers who are current City water and wastewater utility customers representing various customer classes.
