Dublin San Ramon Services District (DSRSD), which provides wastewater treatment to Pleasanton, is inviting the public to see how wastewater becomes recycled water at a tour of its treatment plant on April 8.
"Recycled water is easing the impact of drought in the Tri-Valley, keeping valuable landscaping alive and construction projects going without using scarce drinking water," said DSRSD officials.
According to the water agency, Pleasanton, Dublin and southern San Ramon produce 10 million gallons of wastewater every day that must be handled efficiently and safely to protect public health. -- adding that more than 20% of the water used by DSRSD customers is recycled water.
The free tour begins at 1:30 p.m. and lasts 60-90 minutes. It will be open to adults, teens, and children ages seven and up.
Tour reservations are required and can done online or by calling 875-2282.
The treatment plant is located at 7399 Johnson Drive, Pleasanton.
