Water System


The Brooktrails water system serves Brooktrails lots and Spring Creek parcels, but not the Sylvandale Subdivision. Facilities include a water treatment plant with the design capacity of 1.2 million gallons per day (MGD), 60 miles of water mains, 24 water tanks with 1.7 million gallons of storage and 18 pump stations. Click here to learn more about our water system.

You can review our annual Consumer Confidence Report above, which contains test results and water quality information.

Even though the statewide drought is over, Brooktrails has a limited supply of water. Customers need to conserve our supplies, especially during the dry months of the year. Additionally, all customers are limited to a water usage cap of 9,000 gallons per month. Click here to learn earn more about how the water emergency affects Brooktrails

Sewer System

The Township provides wastewater collection for most of the Brooktrails area, but not Spring Creek or Sylvandale. Within the Brooktrails area there are approximately 660 lots that do not have sewer service, most located at higher elevations on streets named Ridge, Iris, Blue Lake and Alcott. This includes about 616 lots are unimproved and about 44 lots are improved and on septic systems.

The wastewater collection system includes three sewer lift stations at various elevations, about 65 miles of sewer lines throughout the collection system, and a trunk line to the Wastewater Treatment Plant in the City of Willits. Township crews have completed a smoke test of the entire Brooktrails sewer system to locate and remove sources of unauthorized inflow into our system and are engaged in an ongoing inspection of the system for infiltration from cracked pipes and displacement due to ground shifting. 

Wastewater collected within Brooktrails Township is treated at the City of Willits Wastewater Treatment Plant. The plant is a secondary treatment facility.

Beginning in 1997 and ending in 2015. the Township and the City of Willits were involved in a dispute over matters related to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. Click here to learn What You Need to Know about the Willits Wastewater Treatment Plant Dispute
