December 1, 2017 

The San Bernardino Municipal Water Department (SBMWD) water distribution system was recognized at the Water Board meeting held on November 14th, 2017, for having provided over 100 years of reliable water service to the City of San Bernardino.

"Longevity of service such as this can only be acheived by excellence in design and installation, along with outstanding operational maintenance over a long period of time." said Mr. Josuhua Blount of the Ductile Iron Pipe Research Association. "This presentation also allows us to recognize the daily commitment of your water department and engineering professionals, both past and present, to provide the citizens of San Bernardino with safe, plentiful and reliable drinking water."
