Water Source and Storage
The source of water for all uses is primarily the Cosumnes River plus some direct rainfall into reservoir watersheds. The District's State Water Rights Permit allows diversion for municipal usage only during winter and spring months.
Wastewater Collection, Storage, and Recycling
Imposed at the formation of Rancho Murieta, state regulations prohibit any discharge of wastewater into the Cosumnes River. Regulations require treated wastewater to be recycled for irrigation of golf courses, parks, and common areas.
Storm water and irrigation runoff are collected in the drainage system throughout the community.
