DSRSD to close Dublin recycled water station this month

Pleasanton fill station to remain open to public

The Dublin San Ramon Services District will close its Dublin residential recycled water fill station on Oct. 30 as a cost-cutting measure as wetter weather approaches.

The Dublin fill station opened in June to provide more recycled water for landscaping to help residents save frontyard grass and plants during the drought. The Pleasanton fill station, located on Johnson Drive, will stay open to the public for free indefinitely, the district announced this week.

"As temperatures cool and we approach winter rains, it makes sense to reduce our costs and operate only one fill station through the winter," operations manager Dan Gallagher said in a statement. "We opened the fill stations to help homeowners save valuable trees and landscaping during the drought emergency. They are meant to be a temporary solution."

In September, the Dublin fill station distributed 662,000 gallons of recycled water and averaged 200 users daily, the district said. The Pleasanton fill station distributed 4.6 million gallons of recycled water in September and averages 550 users daily.
