Summary

 

The North San Jose/Alviso water service area in the City of San Jose is supplied primarily by the SF RWS through two turnouts off the Bay Division Pipelines 3 and 4.


The SF RWS turnouts are equipped with emergency connections for a portable chlorinator.

 

The North San Jose/Alviso service area has two storage tanks and four wells capable of meeting average and peak flow demands that supplement the SF RWS supply during high flow periods. An intertie with the City of Santa Clara can be activated within 2 hours.

 

Other communities in the San Jose Municipal Water System are supplied primarily by water purchased from the Santa Clara Valley Water District, with supplemental supplies coming from local groundwater.
