The City of Toledo owns and operates a water system with in-service components dating back to the 1930’s. The City provides water to residential, commercial and industrial customers within the 2630-acre Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) and is a wholesale supplier of treated water to the Seal Rock Water District. The 2010 Water Master Plan investigated the needs within the current UGB, plus areas encompassing the raw water supply and transmission facilities for a 20-year period into the future, ending in 2030. The Water Master Plan assessed current water demands, existing infrastructure, as well as future needs. The complete report can be found at, Toledo Water Master Plan 2010.
In 2010, the City of Toledo obtained a revenue bond in the amount of $6.5 million, for Phases I and II for the Water Master Plan improvement. The various improvements in the Water Master Plan are prioritized and separated into four separate phases. Progress in the various projects within Phase I and II can be seen below.
