Submitted by the Dublin San Ramon Services District:
Last night the Dublin San Ramon Services District (DSRSD) Board of Directors unanimously awarded McGuire and Hester the $2,146,700 contract to bring recycled water to the central Dublin area. Specifically, this project provides recycled water, a drought-proof water supply available year around, to irrigate landscapes at four school properties (, , , and Cronin Park which is located between and ) and three city parks (Kolb, Stagecoach, and Alamo Creek).
To do this, the contractor will install 8,200 linear feet of recycled water pipe, with diameters ranging from four inches to 12 inches. These new pipelines will connect to the 16-inch main supply line located in the Iron Horse Trail, north of Amador Valley Boulevard and south of Alcosta Boulevard. Most of the new pipelines will be constructed within existing city streets, which may cause traffic delays due to lane closures.
The project also entails crossing under South San Ramon Creek and retrofitting existing irrigation systems at the parks and schools to conform to recycled water guidelines.
When completed, this project will expand the District’s existing recycled water distribution system to deliver an additional 4.3 million gallons of recycled water per year. In 2011, District customers used 645 million gallons of recycled water. Essentially, this project delivers enough water annually to meet the water demands of 425 households.
Construction is expected to last four to five months: some will occur along the Iron Horse Trail and other sections will occur along Amador Valley Boulevard. Check our web site for the latest construction updates and follow us on Twitter.
