Recycled Water Pipeline - Bishop Ranch Area/San Ramon

Recycled water helps save limited drinking water supplies, especially during droughts. Using recycled water safeguards community and private investments in parks and landscaping, sustains our economy with improved water reliability, and protects the ecology of the San Francisco Bay.

The Bishop Ranch pipeline is part of the San Ramon Valley Recycled Water Program, which supplies recycled water for irrigation of parks, greenbelts, schools, common area landscapes and golf courses in the San Ramon Valley. When complete, the phased project will serve an annual average of 2.4 million gallons per day of recycled water to EBMUD irrigation customers in parts of Blackhawk, Danville and San Ramon. The San Ramon Valley Recycled Water Program is a joint effort between EBMUD and the Dublin San Ramon Services District to serve their respective customers.

In 2016, EBMUD completed installation of pipeline in the Bishop Ranch Business Park area of San Ramon. The pipeline runs along Camino Ramon, Alcosta Blvd., and other roads in the area.

EBMUD crews are currently working to connect irrigation customers in the area to recycled water service.

Funding

A California Department of Water Resources drought-relief construction grant provided EBMUD with $2 million to help install 3.6 miles of recycled water pipe and expand the EBMUD recycled water distribution system around the Bishop Ranch Business Park.

For funding assistance, EBMUD wishes to acknowledge with gratitude that this pipeline project was financed, in part, under the Safe Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2006 (Proposition 84), administered by California State Department of Water Resources.
