Come join BAWWA and tour the City of Martinez Water Treatment Plant. The Martinez Water Treatment Plant is a conventional water treatment plant that treats surface water from the Delta, sent through the Contra Costa Canal System.

The City of Martinez Water Treatment Plant serves mostly the City of Martinez’s 30,000 customers and has a peak flow of 15 MGD, but a sustained flow of about 10 MGD. The facility was built in 1948, and underwent several major upgrades over the years, with installation of an ozone system in 1990, to battle taste and odor compounds in the source water, and most recently a seismic upgrade in 2012.
