Even in dry weather, Dublin, Pleasanton, and southern San Ramon produce 10 million gallons of wastewater a day that must be handled efficiently and safely to protect public health. Today’s wastewater treatment plants also recover important resources, including recycled water for irrigation and construction and methane for generating electricity.
