June 21st, sister agency Central Contra Costa Sanitary District diverted one million gallons of sewage to the Jeffrey G. Hansen Water Recycling Plant. Yes, it was planned. Yes, we want their sewage. It enables us to make more irrigation water for parks, school grounds, and golf courses in the San Ramon Valley: Central San, East Bay Municipal Utility District, and DSRSD. The previous five days, our water recycling plant used every drop of sewage to make irrigation water. Sewage from Central San is a temporary supply during consecutive hot summer days, so we can make more irrigation water when it is needed most. Thank you, Central San, for partnering with us on this project.
