Water and Recycled Water Planning
Dublin San Ramon Services District, California
West Yost worked with the District to provide master planning for both its water and recycled water systems, and to provide the design for water and recycled water facilities. During this project, the West Yost team used a collaborative approach to create a plan that maximizes the benefit of recycled water as a long-term resource.
The work included the completion of a comprehensive Water Master Plan update, integrating aggressive water conservation and reclaimed water elements. Through water conservation and the identification of reclaimed water use opportunities, the projected future potable water demands were significantly reduced. The reduction in projected future potable water demands allowed for a reduction in future potable water storage, which led to a revision of the District’s capital improvement program, including the elimination of a previously recommended new storage tank.
The planning tool developed by West Yost allows the District’s potable and recycled water hydraulic models to stay updated and relevant as future development plans are planned and implemented.
