The Dublin San Ramon Services District, which provides wastewater treatment to Pleasanton, has opened its second residential recycled water fill station located at the city of Dublin's Public Safety Complex, 6363 Clark Ave.
The water district has been offering free recycled water to homeowners in efforts to help keep their landscaping alive during the drought, due to the two days per week irrigation restrictions.
The new fill station is smaller than the original station, located at 7399 Johnson Drive in Pleasanton, and has different rule and limited hours:
• Users should enter the Dublin fill station via Village Parkway and turn right into the fill station. Users may not turn onto Clark Avenue from Dublin Boulevard.
• Trailers are not allowed. Vehicles pulling trailers should use the Pleasanton fill station.
• Dublin fill station hours include: Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed Friday, July 3).
• New users can sign an agreement and receive training and an identification card during new customer hours (Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 8-9 a.m.).
• The maximum load per visit is 300 gallons and users need to pay attention to their vehicle's loading capacity. There is no limit on the number of visits per day.
DSRSD opened the Pleasanton water fill station a year ago after all Tri-Valley water agencies set strict limits on using drinking water for landscape irrigation.
"The program has become extremely popular, with more than 2,000 registered users and 7.6 million gallons distributed to date," said DSRSD officials.
The recycled water is free to any resident willing to purchase containers and transport it. Users do not have to be DSRSD customers.
