Construction Update: The Commercial Recycled Water Fill Station is open for use by permit holders. Short-term closures due to construction at the water recycling plant will be posted here.
Recycled Water Must Be Used at Construction Sites
The District requires the use of recycled water for construction purposes where it is reasonably available. Recycled water must be used for grading and compaction, dust control, landscape irrigation, and sewer flushing. Recycled water is available from hydrants and at the water recycling plant in Pleasanton.
The District Engineer may allow exceptions if recycled water does not meet specifications for mixing construction materials or if potable water is necessary to address an immediate health and safety need. Contractors must submit documentation showing that recycled water does not meet the necessary water quality parameters. DSRSD's recycled water quality data may be found here.
Tanker trucks can quickly load up to 4,000 gallons at DSRSD's commercial recycled water fill station.
Commercial Recycled Water Fill Station
The Commercial Recycled Water Fill Station is located inside the DSRSD Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility at 7399 Johnson Drive in Pleasanton.
Before your first water pickup, you must apply for a permit at the District Office, 7051 Dublin Boulevard, Dublin, and be trained in mandatory procedures. Please schedule an appointment with Ann Cigliuti at (925) 875-2334. Download the Water Reuse Permit and Construction Meter Use Agreement to fill in and bring with you. Also contact Ann to renew an existing permit.
Due to site constraints, the commercial fill station can only accommodate water trucks with a capacity of 4,000 gallons or less. Tractor-trailer water tankers cannot be accommodated.

The Residential Recycled Water Fill Station is closed until further notice due to construction at the water recycling plant.
Recycled Water Construction Meters and Hydrants
Purple recycled water hydrants are located throughout the District’s service area (map). To use these hydrants, you must obtain a purple recycled water construction meter from the District. Recycled water hydrants have unique nozzles that do not fit the District’s yellow potable water construction meters. This minimizes the possibility of cross connections between the potable and recycled water distribution systems.
Apply for a recycled water construction meter at the Permit Counter at the District Office. You will be asked to complete a Water Reuse Permit and Construction Meter Use Agreement and pay a deposit (check or cash only) and any applicable fees. The District Office is located at 7051 Dublin Blvd. in Dublin and is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Where recycled water distribution mains are adjacent to a construction site, DSRSD may allow temporary connection to the distribution main. For more information, call (925) 828-0515 and follow menu prompts to Engineering, construction permits.
