Quarry Site Restoration Project

EBMUD is in the early conceptual planning phase of the Quarry Site Restoration Project (Project) which is located at the former San Leandro Rock Company Quarry Site at 13575 Lake Chabot Road in unincorporated Alameda County. EBMUD is considering the Quarry Site for placement of clean pipeline trench soils and restoration. Currently, as EBMUD replaces water distribution pipelines, the trench soils are transported to temporary storage sites. After the temporary storage sites reach capacity, periodic transport of the trench soils to final reuse or disposal sites is required. The Project would provide a final location for EBMUD trench soils, a long-term economical and sustainable solution, as well as an opportunity for beneficial re-use. As the Quarry Site is filled with trench soils, it could  be restored by EBMUD to provide potential open space and passive recreational uses, such as hiking trails.


On June 3, 2021 EBMUD staff presented the Project, conceptual site design visual simulations, and solicited input on potential community ideas, issues, and concerns.
