Our Mission

At Herlong Public Utility District, we are committed to providing safe, high quality water services to our community, while maintaining a standard of excellence in customer service and environmental conservation.

Water Rate Change

There will be a public hearing regarding the Water Usage Rate for all of our Division I customers. Division I customers are the following: SIRCo Property Managment, Fort Sage Schools & commercial buildings in town. This is a small increase from $1.70 per 1000 gallons of water used to $1.80 per 1000 gallons.

PFOA Sample Results

PFOA's are an emerging contaminant that is showing up all over the country. PFOA's are found in thousands of products that are used everyday. The negative health effects are of enough concern that HPUD decided sampling for PFOA's before there is a requirement to do so by the USEPA or the State of California was the right thing to do. HPUD sampled our sources on August 19, 2019. All results were "ND" or "Non Detect". If you have any questions about PFOA's or would like a copy of the lab results please contact our office.

Imagine a Day without Water

Imagine a Day without Water

October 01, 2019

Could you go a day without water? No water to drink or make coffee. No water to shower, brush your teeth, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Firefighters couldn't put out fires and farmers couldn't water their crops. 

We know that water is essential.  That’s why we want you to know about a nationwide educational effort called “Imagine a Day Without Water.” On October 23, the Value of Water Coalition is coordinating a national advocacy and educational event, Imagine a Day Without Waterto raise awareness about the most essential resource we have: Water.  Across the country, water agencies, mayors, engineers, contractors, business leaders, community members, schools, organizations, corporations, environmental advocates, and more are joining together to educate people about how water is essential, the challenges facing water and wastewater systems, and the need for investment.

Even though water is absolutely vital to everything we do, it too often is forgotten. Out of sight, out of mind. Many people take water service for granted. Clean, safe, reliable, and affordable water comes out of the tap and flows down the drain without a second thought. But the massive infrastructure, much of it underground, which brings water to homes and businesses, takes it away, and treats it, is aging. A water main breaks somewhere in the U.S. every two minutes. Most pipes have an average life expectancy of 50 years, but in many major cities, water pipes are more than 100 years old. Communities cannot afford to go a day without water if those systems reach their breaking points.
