EBMUD is improving the water system to meet future demands in the areas of Orinda and Lafayette served by Happy Valley Reservoir. At this time, there is not adequate water storage capacity to meet peak daily demand.
The new Happy Valley Pumping Plant will be located on Miner Road at Camino Sobrante in Orinda. An associated pipeline is being constructed in two phases, one completed in summer 2009 and the other which is expected to begin construction in mid-2015.
Workplan and schedule
Construction of the new pumping plant is expected to begin in late 2022/early 2023.
