DSRSD Seeks Recycled Water Retrofits
Builders who installed recycled water landscape irrigation systems in residential neighborhoods in Dublin in mid-2015 through 2018 are being asked to convert at the developers’ expense those systems to potable water. This would involve a significant and costly retrofit of hundreds of single-family and multi-family homes along with installation of an expensive Zone 7 water meter. In a letter to developers dated May 23, 2019, DSRSD Engineering Manager Judy Zavadil states that potable water services within these areas were not properly installed above grade within the garages as required by the variance. DSRSD will shut off the recycled water service if builders fail to respond within 30 days. In order to determine whether or not an association response is warranted, BIA|Bay Area is asking members who may be impacted to contact East Bay Governmental Affairs Executive Director Lisa Vorderbrueggen at 925-348-1956 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
