Recycled Water Pump Station: Dougherty Road/San Ramon

Project Status

On July 9, 2019, the EBMUD Board of Directors adopted the Final Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Pump Station R3000 Project, selected Site A2 (adjacent to the west side of Dougherty Road, south of the Dougherty Road and Red Willow Road intersection) as the Project location, and approved the Project. More information regarding the Project and its location is available below.


Map: proposed locations for pump station R3000Background

Irrigating with recycled water saves precious drinking water and reduces the chance of significant rationing during droughts.

EBMUD plans to build a recycled water pump station with approximately 5.6 million gallons per day of capacity. This will allow us to provide recycled water for irrigation to new customers in San Ramon as well as Blackhawk and Danville.

Location

EBMUD identified two possible locations for the pump station (see map). The preferred location “A2” has been selected by the EBMUD board of Directors. A2 is on the shoulder of Dougherty Road. An alternate location (“A4”) was also reviewed in the project Mitigated Negative Declaration. The A4 site is located on DERWA (Dublin San Ramon Services District/EBMUD) property off of Lilac Ridge Road and Lantana Way. The site will include a pump station, parking and electrical facilities. The pump station will be up to 21 feet high and approximately 30 feet by 40 feet at the base. The site will include security fencing. Noise reduction design will include acoustical louvers. Construction is proposed for a roughly two-year period between 2022 and 2024.

Mitigated Negative Declaration

In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act, EBMUD completed a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) and determined that, with mitigation, the project will not generate significant impacts. The MND was made available for public review and comment between October 8 and December 7, 2018. Public meetings were held on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 and Tuesday, November 13, 2018. A final MND incorporating response to public comment was made available on June 28, 2019.
