Dublin San Ramon Services District (DSRSD) will be relocating its field operations center to a two-acre parcel in Pleasanton.
The district, which provides wastewater services to Pleasanton on contract, will relocate its field operations to a building on Commerce Circle that is adjacent to two other DSRSD properties, the district announced Tuesday.
The building will largely act as office space and storage space for field operators, who maintain the water and wastewater provider's infrastructure. System operators who will work out of this building spend their days managing the district's pump stations, sampling water quality and fixing pipeline breaks, among many other jobs.
The building, located at 7035 Commerce Circle, cost $4.9 million, and the district stated the purchase and move was a good investment since district staff needed to move from its current location at the Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Center by Sept. 30, per a lease agreement.
"This property was a good opportunity for the District," said Engineering Services Manager Dan McIntyre in a release. "It had an existing warehouse large enough to store our maintenance equipment and spare parts pipe fittings, valves, meters, and temporary piping ranging from eight to twenty inches in diameter."
The district had to move out of its current spot at the Dublin training center because there are plans for a development and a community park to be built on that land, the district stated.
"Because the facility is adjacent to other District facilities, we could purchase less land for Field Operations and use the neighboring property to store heavy equipment and materials," McIntyre said.
DSRSD also provides water and wastewater services to Dublin and parts of San Ramon.
