Planned recycled water projects

EBMUD has built infrastructure with the capability to provide over 9 million gallons a day of recycled water. EBMUD's long-term plan sets a goal of increasing recycled water use to 20 million gallons a day by 2040. To meet this goal, EBMUD is planning future projects in two regions:

East Bayshore Recycled Water Project

The East Bayshore Recycled Water Project serves industrial and irrigation customers in Oakland and Emeryville. EBMUD is currently planning future phases of expansion into Berkeley, Albany and Alameda.

EBMUD has already partnered with City of Albany to install recycled water pipeline along roads and bike paths, which will expedite the future expansion of recycled water.

San Ramon Valley Recycled Water Program

The San Ramon Valley Recycled Water Program delivers recycled water for irrigation customers. Future phases include two pump stations and pipeline to bring recycled water to additional customers in San Ramon, as well as Danville and Blackhawk.

The program is a joint effort involving EBMUD, the Dublin San Ramon Services District (DSRSD) and the City of Pleasanton. Federal stimulus funding and a partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have accelerated pipeline extension.

Upcoming project: Recycled Water Pump Station: Dougherty Road

Other Projects

More Bay Area golf courses and industries are interested in using recycled water

EBMUD anticipates expanding existing recycled water projects to include more users and establishing new recycled water partnerships with industries and/or neighboring wastewater agencies. The District also anticipates the development of small satellite projects to meet the irrigation needs of large water users like golf courses and cemeteries.

The schedule for implementing recycled water projects depends first on the interest and willingness of potential customers and partners. Second, EBMUD and its partners must ensure availability of adequate effluent supplies (the source for recycled water). And third, the partners will need funding to help support the development of recycled water infrastructure.
