Reclaimed Water Project

The Dublin Unified School District has a partnership with the Dublin San Ramon Services District on a large project to provide reclaimed water to multiple sites both public and private, in the west Dublin area. The project will supply reclaimed water to the large field areas of Wells Middle School / Valley High School; Frederiksen Elementary School; Dublin High School; and Murray Elementary School. The project provides another wonderful opportunity to save precious district financial resources through long-term, on-going cost savings but also to take another great step in our environmental stewardship.  This project is slated to take place during the summer of 2011.
