Central San Named Best in the State
Central San’s people and programs are among the best in the state. This fact was acknowledged recently when the District was named Treatment Plant of the Year (Large) for 2012 by the California Water Environment Association, and the District's Collection System came in second place.
Recycled Water Expansion Project to Start in Concord
The project will see the installation of nearly 2.5 miles of new underground pipelines that will provide recycled water for landscape irrigation at local businesses, office parks and street medians in an area of Concord where turf-style landscaping currently consumes up to 80 million gallons of drinking water each year.
The initial construction phase for the project will begin in May and is expected to be complete in early 2014. At that point, the conversion from potable water connections to recycled water ones will begin. Thirty six new customers for recycled water are expected to connect to the new recycled water lines.
This project is financed by the Central Contra Costa Sanitary District and the City of Concord, with planning and design grants from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's Title XVI Program. Additional grant funding comes from the California Department of Water Resources, in collaboration with the Bay Area Clean Water Agencies (BACWA) and the Western Recycled Water Coalition (WRWC).
Along with reducing the amount of drinking water now used for landscaping, the Concord Landscape Project will provide a drought-proof water supply for landscaping; reduce our dependence on the Delta for water supplies; and create new construction jobs in the community.
