San Ramon Pump Station Neighbors Learn about Wastewater Diversion Project
Central San Wastewater Could Become Irrigation Water for San Ramon
Last night, directors and staff from DSRSD, East Bay Municipal Utility District, and Central Contra Costa Sanitary District held an Open House in San Ramon. The public learned about the San Ramon Valley Recycled Water Program’s (SRVRWP) desire to divert a small portion of wastewater to its water recycling plant to produce more recycled water for irrigation in San Ramon. The wastewater diversion would typically occur on hot summer days when the need for recycled irrigation water is at its greatest. The recycled water helps keep parks, roadway medians, golf courses, and school grounds green. Open house attendees learned about project construction, which would take four to six weeks and result in 80 feet of pipeline and a 6-foot-by-6-foot concrete vault, all underground. During construction, there would be no disruption to users on the Iron Horse Trail or to any neighboring streets. SRVRWP would pay all costs associated with this project. For more information, contact DSRSD Engineering Services Manager Judy Zavadil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
